What makes a genuine farmers market?

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 possible
  • The person behind the stall must be the producer, a close family member or an employee directly involved with the production, allowing you to ask questions about how it was produced. Try it – they like to talk.
