The Quirks Of Farmers Market Foods

Farmers markets are full of treasures, especially this time of year, says Mother Nature Network.

For those who are less familiar with farmers markets, certain quirks about the food might come as a shock at first.

For example, apples, pears and stone fruits will have more blemishes than conventional grocery store fruit.

That's because they're not being sprayed with pesticides, so they have more exterior blemishes, or "freckles!" It's also likely that you'll come across some produce in unusual colors - like white eggplants or purple cauliflower!

You don't see as much of a rainbow at grocery stores because they buy in bulk and buy what's most popular.

Another shocker might be holes in leafy greens like arugula and kale.

This is also because the greens are grown organically, which means bugs get to take a few nibbles on the leaves.
