Description

A farmers' market (also called farmer's market or farmers market) consists of individual vendors—mostly farmers—who set up booths, tables or stands, outdoors or indoors, to sell produce, meat products, fruits and sometimes prepared foods and beverages. Farmers markets add value to communities:
- Farmers/producers sell directly to consumers, minimizing profit loss by circumventing the middleman.
- Consumers can buy direct from the farmer/producer.
- Consumers can obtain organic fruits and vegetables from Certified Organic farmers
- Consumers can enjoy fresh, seasonally-grown food that was produced within a drivable distance from their homes.
- More capital remains in the consumers’ community.

Farmers markets exist worldwide and reflect their area's culture and economy. Their size ranges from a few stalls to several city blocks. In some cultures, live animals, imported delicacies unavailable locally, and personal goods and crafts are sold. Such markets were commonplace before the Industrial age but most were replaced in modernized cities with grocery stores and supermarkets that sell food that is usually produced, packaged, and shipped from remote places. Farmers markets often feature produce grown naturally or organically, meats that are raised humanely on pasture, handmade farmstead cheeses, eggs and poultry from free-range fowl, as well as heirloom produce and heritage breeds of meat and fowl.
