The difference between a produce auction and a Farmers' Market is that
produce auctions usually allow produce from other areas or countries. Many
Farmers' Markets today require the produce to be locally grown.
We have one farmer who runs a farm stand, but brings in a lot of produce
from the auction. He used to sell at the local Farmers' Market, but his kids
told people that they grow their own produce....yeah, like bags of oranges
and watermelons in May. They kicked him out of the Farmers' Market, but he
set up his own stand and does great business.
