In Farmer's Markets, the produces are always in a good condition and fruits are always in season. Many people get bogged down as to where they can find the best and freshest fruits and vegetables in the vicinity. With this kind of dilemna one is faced with the possibility of buying from Farmers Markets, a place where the ingredients are fresh and cultivated in a safe way.

*Produces (i.e. vegetables and fruits) are always fresh, fruits are sold in season- Farmers do not pick fruits that are not in season to be able to preserve the freshness. In farmers markets the produces are guaranteed fresh because they are often handpicked by the farmers on the wee hours of the morning because it is sold. That is farmers markets usually open from 8-12 noon and prices usually goes down before noon because the vegetables ar enot fresh anymore.
