Farmers' Markert

Farmers' Market
  • Merriam-Webster defines a farmers’ market as “a market at which local farmers sell their agricultural products directly to consumers.” Farmers' markets can be seasonal, indoor or outdoor, and often take place in the same location.

  • The Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services provides a searchable list of locations that participate in the Farmers Market Nutrition Program (FMNP), which provides coupons for Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) recipients. 

 

What to ask Farmers’ Markets Vendors

Questions
  • Do you grow these yourself? Do you grow all that you sell? If not, is it local or do you buy wholesale? What do you consider local?

  • Where is your farm located? May I visit your farm? How are your products grown?

  • If organic, who certifies your farm, or may I see your certification?
