Farmer’s Market Finds


Look for hidden gems
At the farmer’s market, don’t let crowds deter you from checking out the smaller stands in the middle of the market – you’ll find some of the best vendors there.

Make a meal plan
Figure out what you want to cook for the week ahead of time, so you can buy whatever produce looks best and fits your budget.

Shop the grocery store, too
Stock up on shelf-stable items like pasta, dry goods, nuts and spices so that you can do the bulk of your shopping at farmers’ markets and only hit the grocery every few weeks.
