Countryside Farmers' Markets
At nine o'clock on Saturday morning the cowbell rings. Within seconds, a stampede of visitors rushes into the market and customers greet farmers at their favorite stands. The farmers' market is one of the best ways for small-scale, local farmers to earn a living and gain publicity.
