Farmers markets

Have you enjoyed a farmers market, I have been to many. So many fresh and wonderful things. 

I love the ones that have live local musicians. I feel that it brings a community together.

There is a farmers market near where I live every Saturday from 9 till 3 I think. The sign said earlier I think that is so the vendors can set up all their wares.

Tips on going to your first farmers market. Bring about $40 cash.(I have a little more of a stash  with me. I will use the remaining money next time) Modern times many of the sellers have the chips that hook to their phones but some are still cash only. 

Get there early as the fresh produce goes fast. 

Having time to spare, talking to the people is what brings a sense of community. Some of them are quite the story tellers. Smell the air, so many wonderful things have been brought there to sell. Pet the pets, smile at the old and young. Bring in a bag or basket to carry out your finds. Be prepared to walk about the market and the parking is sometimes far.

Look through the whole market if you can before buying, different people sell things for different prices. Some have things I enjoyed more than others and don’t mind paying more.
