Area Farmers Bring Their Produce to You

Wednesday, April 21, 1999; Page F03

Farmers' markets are not farm stands. They are, for the most part, publicly sponsored periodic gatherings of farmers and their produce. In our list: "Producers" means the products being sold were grown or produced by the participants. "Local growers" means sellers may be bringing items from their own farm or items grown on nearby farms. If a listing has neither of these designations it means the produce sold may come from outside the area and may be being sold by nonfarmers or by farmers supplementing their own crops.
