6 Tips for Navigating Farmers’ Markets
Make Friends With Your Farmers
“Farmers are a wonderful resource,” says Nicole Berube, executive director of the Connecticut Cityseed markets, because they’re so familiar with the produce they’re selling. Ask your farmer questions about how to prepare an unfamiliar vegetable, what types of recipes work best, or how to preserve the produce. If you buy items in bulk when they’re in season and learn from your farmer how to can or pickle, you’ll be able to enjoy the tastes of summer—for less!—all year round.
