Tips For Shopping at a Farmer's Market
Buy in-season produce
Fruits and vegetables in season are often of higher quality and less expensive. Ask a farmer to learn more about the in-season produce, or check out the Arizona Harvest Calendar link below.
Try something new
Try new fruits and vegetables. Ask farmers how to prepare them. Keep in mind that the produce in farmer's markets may not look as perfect as the ones in supermarkets. Don't be afraid to give them a try. Odd varieties and imperfect produce are often cheaper while still tasting delicious.
