14. It’s a great opportunity to socialize with your community
Forget block parties-farmers’ markets give you the chance to mingle with your neighbours and learn more about your community and its residents.
15. You can spend more time outdoors
Who wants to spend their weekend inside on a beautiful summer day? Since most farmers’ markets take place outside, doing your shopping here allows you to enjoy the short warm season and make the most of your free time.
16. You can make requests-and provide feedback
If you’re not happy with something you purchased, or are looking for tomatoes that are a little bigger, juicier or even greener, you can ask for it. Especially if you become a regular shopper, producers will get to know you and will often be happy to fulfill special requests.
