Food from the farmers' market tastes sweet, crisp, and fresh!
Often fruits and vegetables were picked just hours before the farmers' market opens, and have traveled less than fruits and vegetables traveling through the conventional wholesale channel to the grocery stores. The fruit offered at farmers' markets is sweeter because it has higher sugar content because it has ripened on a tree instead of a truck/train or shelf.
