10 Ways to Dominate Farmers’ Markets: Friday Quickie

Rittenhouse farmer's MarketHeading to Rittenhouse, Headhouse, Collingswood or Bryn Mawr this weekend?

There’s boatloads of Farmers’ Markets in Philadelphia right now, so it’s a great excuse to get out, meet farmers and buy local produce.

Before you head over to your neighborhood market, it’s best to have a game plan to get the cream of the crop. Here, 10 tips to ensure you dominate the produce stalls like a seasoned pro.

1. Patience is a virtue.
When you first arrive, take a walk to the end as you browse products and prices. After you’ve surveyed the whole place, you can go back and purchase the best of the best. Otherwise, you may kick yourself for settling for the first vendor you see!

2. Bring cash.
Note: Most farmers’ market vendors do not accept credit cards.

For the rest of the list, check out my guest post on Be Well Philly.
