There are three golden rules that should apply to a genuine farmers’ market:
- Producers must be local, defined as within a specified radius of the market site (normally 30 miles).
- Producers must sell their own produce. All secondary produce should contain local ingredients where appropriate.
- The person behind the stall must be the producer, a close family member or an employee directly involved with production, allowing you to ask questions about how it was produced. Try it – they like to talk.
