WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE WITH A 'NORMAL' MARKET?

A farmers market is just a bit different than a normal market. At a farmers market there are mainly farmers with their own farm products. So just like at the other points of sale in the short chain , no auctions or supermarkets are involved. Most farmers’ markets have regulations. It states, for example, that all stalls must sell farm products or that there may only a few stalls per product category. There are many traditional farmers ‘markets such as the farmers’ market.

WHICH FARM PRODUCTS DO I FIND AT A FARMERS MARKET?

The range varies from farmers ‘market to farmers’ market, but you can rest assured that your products are grown locally. The cauliflower that you put in your shopping basket has not traveled superfluous food miles. Moreover, the products are fresher than fresh and completely seasonal. Because what mother nature does not deliver at that moment, you will not find there. And nicely included, the farmer sells his product there himself. So ask him for advice. He will gladly assist you with advice and deed.
