Farmers markets are just one of the many ways farmers and artisanal producers showcase their products, connect with customers, and make a living. The rise and popularity of farmers markets continue to increase, and it is still one of the most common methods for consumers to purchase farm fresh foods.
Ask any farmer, and they will tell you selling at farmers markets is tough work.
Driving long distances, hauling and packing product, and setting up and breaking down mostly on beautiful summer weekends makes for a big commitment.
