Market Money

Shopping Tips

When you come to the farmers’ market, you’re supporting your community and directly supporting the people who grow your food. Many of them get up at 5 a.m. or earlier, and drive miles to get their fresh-picked fruits and vegetables to you. They’re our heroes, but only a part of what makes the market a fun and safe place to visit. Here are a few things you can do to make sure everyone has a great time:

Have Small Bills and Change

Every booth is owner-operated. Some businesses accept credit cards while others are cash-only.

Be Comfy

You look great in anything so dress for the weather and wear comfy shoes. You’ll walk a lot.

Leave Pets at Home

Pets are part of the family, but public health codes say they need to stay home or somewhere safe outside our permitted Food Facilities.

Smoke-Free

Like grocery stores, restaurants, and other food establishments, farmers’ markets are smoke-free.

BYOB (Bring Your Own Bags)

Keep your reusable bags in the car so you always have them handy. Wire cart? Use a box or liner to protect produce.
