The current concept of a “farmers market” is similar to variants of the past, though somewhat different when comparing it to other types, all while elements surrounding aspects of consumer retailing, overall, continue to evolve with the passage of time. Similar forms of what we’re used to as modern day Americans existed before the industrial age, but often formed part of broader “markets” where food and other goods suppliers would gather to retail their wares; today, a farmers market refers to a tangible retail market that offers products sold directly by farmers to consumers. Farmers markets near Woodland Hills typically consist of booths, stands or tables, and can be held outdoors or indoors with farmers selling fruits, vegetables, meats and sometimes prepared foods and beverages.
