Or contact your local Cornell Cooperative Extension office.Your local farmers market is a place where people can come together, not just to buy and sell food, but to share gardening tips and ideas, recipes and seasonal information. The customer gets the freshest, highest quality food, and the grower makes some money. There are no middlemen or stockholders, just local, independent growers selling their own produce and value-added products direct to the public.
