Why should I shop at a farmer´s market?

Buying vegetables

Your best source for fresh vegetables is the farmers' market, or weekly market (Wochenmarkt). If you are in a rural area, you will find that many farmers have stands by the road. In any case, do not buy 'greenhouse tomatoes' from Holland (usually sold at the grocery store, cheap). They are vile, watery and tasteless.
