A farmers market is a market dedicated to the local farmers to sell their produce and other local homegrown products, which is generally located near the centre of the city and is spread across a large area. Hundreds of local farmers travel thousands of kilometres from their villages to come to the cities and sell their produce. The farmers market is not organized throughout the year, but only during certain times of the year after the harvest. It serves as the best option for the consumers as well as the farmers. The consumers can get freshly produced vegetables and fruits directly from the farmers at cheaper rates and the farmers can make much more profit by directly selling than by depending on some intermediary.

Last Sunday, I had my school off, so I decided to help my mother to do household chores. On that day, the farmers market was organized in the Central Market Grounds of our town. I decided to accompany my mother to help her buy the vegetables and other ingredients. We arrived at the market early in the morning. Despite putting efforts into waking up before sunrise, the market was already full of people. It felt like a packed local train of office goers which I board on my way to school. The market was very lively and also very noisy. The vendors kept repeating the prices of their items and trying their best to gain the attention of the people passing by. "Best quality tomatoes only for Rs. 50 per kg," "Freshly picked potatoes for Rs. 30 per kg" were a few of the many sentences you could hear in the bustling market. The smell of the market was mixed, but one could tell apart the [pleasant smell of the fruits selling among the vegetables. The smell was more than enough for the vendors to attract people to their fruit stalls. It felt like, I was on a farm where all types of vegetables and fruits were planted and they were grown naturally with the minimal use of fertilizers. If someone looked with a drone from above, they would see green patches of vegetables floating at a certain height from the ground and people moving like ants here and there. The prices were moderate enough for me, but for someone like my mother, it was still quite high, so bargaining was carried out without any hesitation. There seemed several other people who were willing to buy a kg or two extra to get a little bit discount. 

Overall, the people - both farmers and consumers - seemed happy. The farmers could earn a good amount for their hard work and the people with a tight budget could keep continuing to eat healthy vegetables and fruits. I enjoyed the experience of talking to various people, deciding how much to buy and doing a little bit bargain. I look forward to my next visit to this one of the liveliest markets I have ever gone to.
