Farmers markets are growing in popularity due to the high demand for locally grown foods. Market farming is a great way to start a small farm business. It gives you the chance to interact with consumers directly and tell them about your products and your farming practices. Selling at farmers markets gives you the freedom to set your own prices. You don’t have to produce certain amounts of product, or negotiate deals with brokers or wholesale buyers when you sell directly to consumers.
