Summer Days Are Perfect to Check Out Farmers’ Markets

Here’s a delicious twist to your next Litchfield getaway — a trip to a fantastic farmers’ market. 

Tips for Shopping at Farmers’ Markets

It’s like regular shopping, but fresher and with better stories. Here’s some advice for getting the most out of the wonderful experience.

  1. Plan Meals

Pick a few favorite recipes and make a list. Because inventory fluctuates, be ready with backup plans and open to substitutions.

  1. Ask Questions

Some vendors buy wholesale and resell, which isn’t the same as bringing from their own farm. Ask if they’ve grown it — and look out for produce that looks out of season as a warning sign.

  1. Know the Season

The best produce is what’s in season. Check for any region in any season to see what you should expect at the market.

Fresh produce, yummy treats, and other handmade surprises. You’ll find them all here on your next Litchfield Beach escape.
