Double Up Food Bucks is here to provide you with some tips on how to get the most out of your farmers market experience, and also get the most out of what you are spending.
When to go
Visiting late can have its advantages, too. This is especially true if you’re looking for produce and staples that are better day-of, like dairy, bread, and other perishable products. Sometimes farmers offer their products on sale during the last 30-60 minutes so they do not have to take everything back with them and risk disposing of it later. The produce can be up to 50% off, and vendors who sell bread and baked goods sometimes do 2 for 1 deals towards the end of the market.
