Farmers’ Market etiquette
1. Make sure you understand what's in season so you have the right expectations.
2. Come prepared with reusable shopping bags and small bills. You might want to bring a folding shopping cart if you anticipate a large haul. Bring small bills — farmers always appreciate not having to make change for a large bill. Especially earlier in the day.
3. Be respectful of the produce. If you're not sure about how ripe something is, ask the farmer to help you. When you see something interesting — ask the vendor what to do with it. You may discover a new favorite item or recipe.
4. Talk to the vendors. Talking to the farmers and booth workers is one of the huge benefits of the market. While being respectful of the fact that they're working, of course, you might ask where the farm is located, what sort of practices they use, etc. Many farmers are excited to talk about what they do.
5. Don’t forget to ask about pre-ordering. If you like to jam, can or pickle you can almost certainly get a deal if you arrange in advance with the farmer to buy in bulk — a flat of strawberries, a case of tomatoes or a 10-pound container of green beans, for example. And if you make jam or pickles think about sharing a jar with the farmer you bought the produce from.
