JFM features a “farmers’ line” on the gravel lot on the east side of the market. Most farmers sell here from their trailers or trucks and, generally, prefer to wholesale direct to JFM or other area vendors, fine restaurants, road side stands, suburban produce stores, etc. so that they can return to their farms as quickly as possible. Most farmers wholesale between 4 AM and about noon on weekdays. Some farmers will sell retail and have extended hours on the “farmers line” including weekends. A few farmers will retail direct to the public in the shed stalls during the harvest season for their crops. The reality is that, today, most farmers who farm for a living need to spend most of their time at the farm and, thus, chose to delegate selling on their behalf to regular vendors at JFM. JFM vendors not only take direct deliveries from farmers, but some drive their own trucks to farms to bring produce direct to JFM. Be assured that farmers count on your support of JFM vendors to sell their products, whether they are present in-person or not.
