You are right, farmers markets are for farmers, I guess a better term for my
observations would be regional agricultural markets.

>>The most successful farmers Markets I have seen allow all kinds of vendors
to sell all kinds of food products whether they produce them or not in order
to create a draw, once the crowds show up then they begin to restrict or
"refine" the offerings to better highlight the farms in the area.<<
Farmers markets are called "farmers" markets because farmers belong there.
I do agree that a variety of food products, and other farm-produced items,
create a draw.  If I were shopping at farmers market I'd like to be able to
pick up my week's worth of fruits, vegetables, bakery goods, preserves and
other items.  
Wholesale resellers are grocery stores.
