The Top 3 Best and Worst of Your Local Farmers Market

Your local Farmer's Market can be a great place to get some good food that isn't pumped full of pesticides and hormones but there are some good and bad things you need to know before you show up.

Top 3 Best Reasons

3. Your sticking it to the man. Well kinda. Your supporting the local economy by paying the Farmer instead of the big business grocery store. Screw the Middle Man!

2. When you show up your getting some quality food that hasn't been effed with. At your local Farmer's Market your going to get the basics that are always good in any meal so you won't leave without buying something.

1. The price is not that far off from what you would pay at the Grocery Store. I mainly go to the local Farmer's Market for Grass Fed Beef and I can tell you for a fact that it is cheaper than Whole Foods. And some of Whole Foods Meat is not always grass fed but grain finished.

Top 3 Worst Reasons

3. A bunch of these local farmer's don't bring credit card swipers, so bring some cash. To some this might not be a big deal until you get there and no ATM in sight.

2. Sometimes the food spoils faster. This might have something to do with not having the pesticides and hormones but if your busy you might keep that food in the fridge a little longer than you should and if it's all natural it will go bad.

1. You get pushed around by old lady while you wait in line. It may be my fault, but I thought the basics of civilization of a single file line also applied to Farmer's Market and that's where I was wrong. Your not getting in the way of an old lady who wants her turnips and radishes. Yeah, what am I supposed to do push back??


Well there you have it some good and bad of the Farmer's Market. This post was done for fun so don't get me wrong you need to go and get some choice food for reasonable price. Have your money ready and screw the line just cut to the front!!
