Fall is upon us and so too is the peak season for farmers market shoppers. While you may have been setting up your booth all year round, local shoppers know that if they want the freshest autumn produce and a plethora of carving pumpkins to choose from, it's time to head out to the fall farmer's market. Of course, though we may be debating Halloween costumes and practicing our pumpkin pie recipes, not all regions have a cool autumn. If you live down south where Halloween night can be well above 70 degrees, you know that your fall farmers market crowd is a hot one. Lemonade sales and shady places are still incredibly popular and stands that offer an opportunity to cool off also tend to bring in more business.
