Vegan farmer’s markets are often a well-kept secret in your neighborhood—or they seem to be! Sometimes this is because they’re regular farmers’ markets under a different guise. Other times, they’re expressly organic and not necessarily vegan, though largely vegetarian for sure. In this article, we will take you through some of the best vegan farmer’s markets in the US, as well as what to buy at them.

What are you Likely to Find at a Vegan Farmers Market?

Vegan farmer’s markets are a growing phenomenon as the interest in veganism grows and farmers see expanding opportunities.

Not every farmer or small grower can get into the big chain supermarkets. Even getting stocked in smaller, local neighborhood stores isn’t always easy.

Why is this? Because there is only so much shelf space.

So, sometimes there is delicious, local produce that’s not getting the spotlight shined on it.

All types of vegetarian and vegan products will be available at a local farmers’ market.

This will include foodstuffs as well as products such as homemade vegan candles, vegan-friendly clothing, as well as other sustainable fashion.

Much of the foodstuffs will be organic, but not necessarily all.

Freshness is also a factor too. If you’ve been saddened at the lackluster condition of vegetables in the supermarket, then a farmers’ market may be preferable.

If vegetables are the star of your vegan cooking, you don’t want anything less than perfect quality.

At farmer’s markets, the fruit and vegetables on offer are often picked on the same day, and brought straight to the stall versus several days ago.

Also, there’s less mass transportation used, so vegan farmers’ markets are typically better for the planet too.

As for prices, they vary widely. However, as a rule, vegan farmers’ markets will be pricier than fresh vegetables from the supermarket chain, but less costly than organic produce from the same retailer.

How can I find a vegan farmers market near me?

Keep a list of your favorites nearby or try doing a voice search on Google for “vegan farmers market near me?”

Search engines usually understand when a local-related search is being performed. They’ll show a list of local markets and a map with GPS waypoints indicating their location. Hovering over the pointers will bring up more information too.

Some farmers’ markets also have a Google rating and reviews posted by people who’ve previously visited. The more recent the review, the more relevant it’ll likely be.

Also, look around for temporary street signs pointing the way to a new vegan farmers’ market.

Ask your vegan friends too. They’ll likely be enthusiastic about new ones or those with better offerings or providing greater value.

Below we have pulled together a list of our communities top vegan farmer’s markets in the US. If you run a vegan farmers market, or you have one that you love, and we’ve missed it off the list, let us know.
