Do you love the Farmer’s Market? I recently went to the Farmer’s Market with my niece and son while visiting my Mom in Berea, KY. I normally don’t shop the Farmer’s Market because I garden and participate in a Produce Co-op. However, I loved the variety that the local Farmer’s Market offered. Our favorite was the BREAD!
My tips for shopping at the Farmer’s Market are to shop late for bargains and bring your own reusable shopping bags.
Also be sure to look for overstock deals and stockpile. Sometimes farmers will have more of something that week then they can sell, so it is cheaper than anyone else selling the same product that week. That is when I take advantage and stockpile.
Take home the overstock and prep it immediately for the freezer. This will extend the life of the produce and you will have garden fresh produce all winter long!
So do you love the Farmers? Market? I would love to hear any tips for success that you have!
