It gets better:
All of these Flower Day Eastern Market buying strategies worked on me–yes customers taught me all I know–I once worked a roadside flower stand. These same methods are timeless and are still applied during every gardening season.
Of the 17 tips checking cell count is the easiest and most efficient. Because it simply involves observation & math. We are free to use all methods to match with personalities, weather & demand.
These are good spirited techniques–conducted in the true friendly spirit of trade, others are simple observation and math; but anyone can save you money and ensure you have a better Eastern Marketing experience.
Side Bar – The Little Green Truck – I have personally watched customers try to bully or insult vendors into a low-ball price; that’s not the technique used here. For instance, one early morning at the Eastern Market Flower Day I stood gazing down at the most beautiful flat of petunias anyone has even seen–grown by a very small grower, both him and his wife looked under five feet in height, and they had a very small dark green truck. A customer question why these flats cost $1.00 more than the others on the market–the seller got irritated and told the person to go and “find it…like this!” As he proudly stated with his hands on both sides, chest stuck out as he popped up on his toes–chuckling. I didn’t waste any time and purchased several flats for his asking price–and gave them a tip–these gorgeous flats were worth more than their $7 asking price. I never take advantage of an individual and always tipped when appropriate. I never again found flats of petunias that looked as good those of the little farmer in the little green truck. The farmer told me the seed variety was called “Ultra Mix”, I searched but could not find the same; there are lots seed brands out there, but… as the little farmer said… “none like this!”
Now if you do this right, and do it all in a fun, good-spirited nature”, the market vendors will always be glad to see you coming year after year.
