'Tis the season for outdoor aisles of fresh produce, breads, cheese, meats, flowers....Farmer's Markets are a dazzling sign that summer is here:.
"Tip #2: Get there when they open (or when they’re about to close): It’s a bit hypocritical that I have this on the list. I’m far from a morning person. However, I do know that farmer’s markets tend to be less crowded when they first open. If you’re an early bird you will also have the best selections available to you. You might score a last-minute deal if you head to the market when it’s just about to close down. The farmers might be willing to negotiate a discount so they don’t have to take it home."
