What to not expect from the Farmer’s Market?
The farmer’s market maybe providing some of the best , organic produces of the country but the price that they label it with is rather expensive. Quality over quantity indeed but the pricing is rather catered towards the foreigners that visit the farmer’s market , rather than the locals who might visit the place. This is also one reason why alot of local people don’t seem to visit the place to buy any produce even though the produces are of high quality but the pricing is rather kept as though that the locals can not normally afford. Then theres the thing that not all vendors provide samples to you when sometime you would want to have a small sample of the produce before buying it. And that is why sometimes the produce that might be just some of the best might not get sold out because the vendor doesnt provide the sample to the customers. In the farmer’s market you might not always get a place to comfortably sit down and have your meal in your leisure because normally the place is packed with foreign families as well as a few locals who want to know what they are providing. The people in the Farmer’s market will be sitting everywhere and if you are a bit late the place is jet packed with people who wont move for until the time the duration of Farmer’s Market ends on that day. There will be times when the dish that you have been wanting to try will be sold out because the vendors make a certain amount of the dish and once they are sold out , they will close the shop and leave. The disappointment when such a thing happens is not great. So, thats another of things that you cannot expect. You cannot expect to always be able to try a certain dish that you always have wanted to try because, chances are that dish might be sold out earlier than you arrive there.
