Preparing for a Local Summer

Posted by Local Llano on June 17, 2016

The sun is getting hotter and the days are getting longer. The farmers’ markets are almost all open and ready for customers. With summer quickly approaching, are you prepared to go?

We have some suggestions to help you make sure you don’t miss a thing!

Making a list of everything you’re looking for can help your trip be efficient and make sure you don’t skip over anything.


CLOCK.jpgPlan your Trip

Make sure you make a plan to go so you have enough time to enjoy the whole experience! Give yourself enough time to spend with each vendor you intend to buy from and to give a good look at everything else.

You don’t have room for everything you need from the farmers’ market in your arms! Pick up some reusable bags to make sure you don’t have to leave anything behind.

CASH.jpgBring Cash

A lot of vendors run on cash-only so just in case, stop by the ATM on your way to the market so you don’t get caught having to put stuff back!

If you have your meal plan for your week, it’ll be easier to keep your product list concise and your budget on point.

Bring your smile

The vendors are out there all day! A friendly smile and a good conversation can go a long way.
