Given the choice, people prefer to purchase fruits and vegetables at outdoor booths or stands. Produce is trucked in by growers who set up stands selling their flowers, fruit and vegetables. Before this, many ranches and farms simply set up tables near the road to sell their fresh, baked and canned foods. Eliminating the grocery store aspect keeps costs low because overhead is eliminated. Growing organic produce takes space and time. To establish a good crop, weeding, watering and protection from insect pests is essential. Environmentally-friendly gardeners try alternative pest controls to protect waterways from toxins. These organic methods are in high demand in rural and urban areas. For those lacking the patience or skill, buying vegetables is the best way to add these foods to your diet. Nutritional benefits from fresh vegetables are plentiful. Greens reduce the risk of certain cancers, add antioxidants to your diet and even lower cholesterol levels. A blueberry can be a great source of antioxidants and vitamins. You can purchase these items in grocery stores, however prices may be higher than at a farmer's market. In addition, only items found in the organic section are free of pesticides. Shop for fresh, local produce at area farms and ranches. Some towns and cities hold seasonal festivals for growers to put their excess produce up for sale. Look for seasonal roadside stands or public venues in rural towns and communities. In urban areas, many gardeners truck in their items to sell from booths in outdoor city markets. You'll save money on all natural fruits and vegetables.

Farm markets will have local ranchers and farmers that sell their fresh produce to give you another option besides chain grocery stores. You can often find organic fruits and vegetables at cheaper prices at greenmarkets, which also help promote small businesses. If you live in an urban area you can still find local markets where farmers come in to sell their fresh produce. Little shops in towns and cities may offer local ranchers' produce. If you want to help the environment and wildlife consider shopping at a store that sells local produce. Festivals may have shops set up for local businesses to sell their items. This can be a great way to find options you wouldn't otherwise know about. Your health can benefit by eating organic products instead of those that have used pesticides. Search online or in a phone book to find a farmer's market near you. Look for a phone number or email address to ask any questions you may have about what you can find at the market or what days and hours they're open. Many locations may only be open during the weekends while others will have weekday hours as well. Ask friends and family if they know of any local farmer's markets that they visit often. You can find reviews online to see where the freshest produce can be found or who has the best prices. Visit several in your area over time to see which you like best. You may want to bring cash with you in case debit or credit cards aren't accepted.
