In the Netherlands, farmers markets are different, there is a fabric market, a produce market, a book market etc. My favorite ones had flowers, food, cheese, fabrics, notions etc etc. Only when temperatures are below freezing point not all vendors would be there.
Here in Sonoma County the farmers markets are more about food, garden plants, and other local treasures. A great place to shop local.
Not all farmers markets are year round, the West End Farmers Market is. Rain or shine, it’s a great place to shop local.
