I have mixed feelings about farmer’s markets…. I do go sometimes when I really need an ingredient and didn’t plan well but I do try to avoid going to markets in general.

Here are some things to keep in mind:

  1. Unless you bike, you’ll be driving to this market
  2. Not everything is organic
  3. Not everything is local
  4. Some vendors simply resell other products
  5. The rent for this market is very high so they have to cover their costs somehow
  6. Staffing a booth for 4 days is not reasonable for most farmers – so, they need to hire staff for this job

My preference is certainly to go the CSA route instead…
