  From what I have experienced the Farmer's Markets are social outlets for many. I live in extreme rural. People in my area use certain small businesses and churches for such. I sell urban and see this pattern being developed around the markets and welcome the instilling of this. This is one reason that markets should consider a year round scheduling of some sort to ensure it's longevity. This can grow into larger attendance and even with meager purchases will help the farmer tremendously. Otherwise some other place could "become" and the markets could lose their patterned appeal.
