How to Navigate a Farmers’ Market

Dan Kluger shares simple tips for how to approach your next visit to the farmers’ market. Next time you go, make sure to remember:

  1. Create a relationship with your farmer.
  2. Have a conversation that goes beyond asking if their produce is organic.
  3. Let the farmer share their story.
  4. You’ll learn more from the farmer and how they grow their produce if you first let them talk.
  5. If it’s not organic, don’t go running right away. Maybe they are not certified but they don’t use any pesticides.
  6. If they have produce that’s not in season, then it’s fair to run!
  7. Ask them where they grow their food.
  8. Once you’ve built trust with your farmer, you know you can always rely on the freshest foods possible.
