Are you ready for a confidence boost?!
As fabulous as many farmers’ markets are, they can also feel congested, overwhelming and intimidating.
For decades I've heard the same comments from people about what keeps them from buying food directly from local producers at farmers' markets:
“There are too many choices, I feel overwhelmed.”
“I’d love to try that new vegetable but I don’t know what to do with it.”
“The meat is so expensive. I can get it for less at the supermarket."
“How do I know who to buy from and how do I know who I can trust?”
“The vendors are busy and I don’t want to bother them with questions.”
“I don’t know how to ask the right questions.”
“I can’t deal with all of the people and strollers.”
"The grocery store is just more convenient."
Farmers’ markets are often seen as a novelty.
A place to grab a coffee, a pastry, and some flowers, but not for serious meal planning or grocery shopping.
Can you relate to any of these?
If so, I'm here to help! What you’re missing is an opportunity to take advantage of what most farmers’ markets are really about. A rich resource of local, sustainable, seasonal food for your table. (And so many other ways you benefit!)
I’ve been shopping farmers’ markets for most of my adult life (that’s almost 30 years). Building relationships and learning about our food system along the way. They are my first stop for groceries before heading to a brick-and- mortar, and I want to inspire the same for you.
The guide I’ve created will inspire, educate, and empower you to be an active participant in your local food system and get tasty healthful food on your table. It’s gotten two thumbs up from some of my trusted farm friends, and I know you’ll find it filled with value and inspiration.
