What are Farmers Markets?

A farmer’s market, like Greenmarket in NYC, is a fixed spot where consumers can buy fresh produce directly from farmers. They’re a kind of temporary marketplace crowded with tables and stands on which farmers sell their produce. While fresh foods are the most common product found in farmers markets, some might also sell plants and animals. Their sizes can vary from a stall or two to an entire block. Unlike stores, these markets are not highly regulated, but they too have some rules to follow. Most of them are established outdoors, but some areas have more sophisticated markets, depending on the local economic condition.
