Here are a few tips for getting the most out of your visit to the farmer's market:
- Go early and have a good browse round before you buy anything.
- Ask for a taste before you buy, but only if you're seriously considering buying.
- Not all markets are equally good. Some are no better than the grengrocer in the high street, with veg from the cash and carry rather than from the farm. Ask questions about the produce.
- When you find a good one, visit it regularly and tell all your friends. They need our support or we'll lose them.
