Once farmers grow and raise their products, they need to decide the best method for selling those goods to customers. To be successful, farmers must reach and attract numerous buyers. Since the early 19th century, Cuyahoga Valley farmers have traveled to farmers' markets, sold their products from roadside stands (usually at the end of the farmer's driveway), and/or used home delivery to distribute goods directly to customers.
