Does anyone here sell vegatables at the farmers market?
I am very dissappointed in both of the farmers markets we have here in Tennessee. 90% of the sellers buy produce from the local produce company and resell it at a higher price that the grocery stores. I am looking for REAL HOME GROWN VEGATABLES not the same vegatables that are sold in the grocery stores.
There seems to be no law or rules against buying and reselling at the farmers markets. It is very dissapointing to buy a tomato only to find it is not home grown.
I think there needs to be a special cetificate or sign or T shirt or something available only to sellers that sell REAL HOME GROWN VEGATABLES so buyers know who is selling the real thing.
I ask people, Did you grow these vegatables?
Answer. They were grown on a farm.
Question. What farm?
Answer. Don't know.
Question. Did you buy these vegatable from Palmer Foods?
Reply. I am not interested in over priced grocery store vegatables.
My plants in TN are not doing well I have not been here to take care of them. I am returning to AZ in a couple more weeks. I sure would love to have a real home grown tomato. All is not lost I have 70 pints and 8 quarts of home grown tomatos in Mason Jars and 54 pints of green beans. I should have melons, squash, tomatoes, garlic, coming up when I return to AZ.
