Farmers Market Must Haves

Farmers Market Must Haves

Beautiful summer weather means it’s time for one of our favorite afternoon outings, heading down to the farmers market! Fresh produce is in abundance and it’s even better when you know it has been carefully harvested or sourced by your neighbor. We have found that most farmers markets make it much easier to access and buy organic produce. So, before you head out the door, make sure to grab these market shopping essentials.

Reusable Bags

You can keep it eco-friendly by (finally) remembering to bring your reusable bags to carry all your goodies. You will want a bag that can hold it all, bulky, wet or delicate. We recommend these awesome totes by TiMoMo. They fold up small so you don’t leave them behind and are super durable, which lasts a lot longer than those pesky plastic bags.

Cash

While most businesses take credit cards these days you may want to head to the ATM and grab some cash. Not only is it easier for you to pay on the go but it will help you, and your small business friends, avoid those annoying credit card fees.

Produce Wash

You will want to make sure you clean your produce before you eat it. While your new fruits and veggies may be organic that doesn’t mean you should skip the wash. Soil quality, manure and handling are just a few reasons why you will want to give your produce a scrub. You can try out Arm & Hammer Fruit & Vegetable Wash!

Don’t miss out on the summer’s best offerings and head down to your farmers market. Just make sure you don’t leave those reusable bags behind and give those fresh fruits a good scrub!
