Growing Fresh Berries for the Farmers Market

This is a story of how farmers markets turned the tables for a berry farm. Kathy and Matt Unger have been farming berries since 1984. Initially, Matt and Kathy sold their berries to local food processors and canneries. They quickly realized this was not a lucrative outlet. Upon being introduced to their local farmers market, the Ungers realized that not only were they capable of making a living, but the social working environment was uplifting. Now Unger Farms can be found at 17 different locations each week.

Here’s a glimpse into a farmer’s perspective at farmers markets.
