Buying direct from a farmer is not a new concept. Velinda Hardy, downtown development manager for the city of Canton and manager of its Saturday farmers market, remembers shopping with her grandmother from the growers selling fruits and vegetables off their trucks lined up on the 10th Street bridge in downtown Opelika, Alabama.

That childhood experience left such an impression that Hardy is not keen on buying produce any other way. “I believe it is important to know where your food is coming from and I love supporting farmers directly.”

When she took her job in Canton, Hardy was excited that managing the Saturday market was part of her responsibilities. “Of all the things I do in my office, this is my favorite, taking care of our farmers and putting them front and center,” she said.

The pandemic caused several shifts in market operations, including a change of location, and 2022 will be the third year the market will allow only farmers and food vendors. “We want to focus on food and what we can do to provide for our families,” Hardy said. Fees to be a vendor are deliberately kept low. Farmers pay nothing and food vendors pay $10 a week.

For those who seem concerned that what they buy from a farmer is more expensive than what they find at a grocery store, Hardy has an answer. “I ask them to consider what the farmer has invested in bringing that produce to market. Think about the money and the time they’ve invested. Do they truly think the farmer is making too much money?”

Musa and Micole Hasan of Bread and Butter Farms in Monroe are former scientists turned farmers who now sell at three farmers markets — Peachtree Road and beginning in April at the Decatur and Grant Park markets. They say that what they sell at those markets makes up about 80% of their income. “I would say that is true of many farmers. Community supported agriculture programs and restaurant sales make up the rest. But we can build a business plan around what we can sell at farmers markets,” said Musa.

The key to developing that business plan is data, and analyzing what sells at the markets provides data for next year’s growing plan. Standing at their booth at a market is also a form of advertising. Micole said, “People stop and talk to us. They learn about us and that builds our customer base.” Those customers may come back to shop again, or they become customers of the farm’s community supported agriculture program.

“Most of our customers come to us because they’re seeking out clean produce for health reasons, often after they have gotten sick. What we want to promote is getting people to the markets before they have to be there,” said Micole, who adds shopping with farmers boosts the local economy and supports farmers who deal every day with the effect of climate change on their crops.
