Shopping Tips For Holiday Farmers Market Trips

Farmers Market, Frisco Fresh Market

Going to the farmers market in Frisco during the fall and winter should be enjoyable. Everything you find at the farmers market during these months is unique to the season. 

Many people think these markets are only open during the summer when most produce is in season. Sadly, you miss many great opportunities when you don’t go to the market during fall and winter.

Here are some top holiday shopping tips for spending the winter weekends at Frisco Fresh Market.

Farm Fresh Holiday Meals

If you are preparing holiday meals for your friends or family this year, think farm fresh. You can shop for many of the items you will serve from the farmers market. Think of how delicious your foods will be when they are sourced locally and are the freshest and most flavorful foods you can use.

Find everything from fresh fruits and vegetables to artisan bread and desserts. Your holiday meal will taste amazing.

Outdoor Market – Holiday Gift Ideas

Are you looking for unusual gifts this holiday season? Do you need a gift for someone that has everything? Why not create a basket of artisan goodies from the farmer’s market?

When you visit the outdoor market, you can find homemade jams and jellies, fresh honey, home-canned pickles, vegetables, soups, and other handcrafted food items made fresh at your local farms. Gather these delicious food items and make a basket as a gift.

Try Something New With Your Next Meal

Fall offers many vegetables that are not available at any other time of year. Indulge in the rich-colored squash or bright orange sweet potatoes. Try a new type of vegetable with your next meal and see why fall foods are considered the most flavorful of all vegetables.

Fall foods also offer many health benefits. Vegetables with deep colors – orange, yellows, purples, and dark green, have additional vitamins. Even more amazing is that these extra nutrients are exactly what the body needs to help fight off colds and flu. Not only do these foods taste great, but they also help your body stay healthy during the colder months.

If you are unsure how to cook one of these vegetables, talk to the booth owner. Farmers have great recipes and ideas for preparing the produce they grow. They can give you some great tips for enjoying the products they sell.

Shop Earlier In The Day

If you want the most from your winter shopping trips at the farmers market, shop earlier in the day. You will find more varieties of produce when you shop earlier, and you can find everything on your list.

Fall crops are generally smaller than summer, so products often sell out quickly. If you are looking for something specific, make sure that you head to that booth first to ensure you get your supplies.
