Fun Time Management
This is a fun little twist on time management gaming that is challenging yet easy to learn. I really enjoyed the farming graphics, seeing my little guys run around frantic and figuring out the Expert solutions to each board.
The graphics are excellent, and the music is peppy and fun. Some of the sound effects could use some work, but other than that minor detail, the overall game play is fun and requires some thinking.

At first it looks at little dull but as the game progresses I couldn't get enough! I've played this game well over 5 times and still can't get enough!

This is a nice variation of a time management game. It is more of a puzzle or strategy game than it is just rapid clicking.
A couple of things that seemed annoying at the beginning: 1) you can't queue up actions and 2) there are no power-ups to make people walk faster. That being said, once I got used to those quirks, I loved this game!!
You go from location to location building up farmer's markets. There are farmer stalls (raw goods like flour and dairy), vendor stalls (products of raw goods like burgers and cookies), and special stalls (boost revenue and crowds). You can only have a finite number of stalls and you can only do as many things at the same time as you have workers for. You can't set up future actions for your workers.
The challenge is in figuring out what order to do things, what special stands to employ, how many workers to have, and managing transporting of goods/clearing trash/etc.
Beating all the levels isn't much of a challenge, but there are between 5 and 15 levels that are a real challenge. If you get the strategy right the first time, you'll get expert. If you don't get the order of play right, you probably won't. Another challenge is that some levels add a goal once you have the first one or two goals completed. It can be annoying or fun (depending on how it affects you), but if you replay the level, it is the same "surprise" goal.
For added self-accolades, there is also a trophy room for different key events such as breaking down 25 stalls and getting gold on every level at a certain location.
This is a great time management game that is different from all the dashing. I love the Dash and Mania and Rush games, but this is a nice, different game. It may not be for every one, but I got hooked about 30 minutes into the free trial. The first couple levels were a bit painful to get through.

Suprisingly loved it!
I am a TMG junky, but not so much on the farming ones. I tried this just for the heck of it and found it to not be the traditional farming game at all. I loved it. It's fun figuring out what each level needs to win. The pace is great. It's sad when your done and you just want more. Great game to try!

The level of challenge in this game is actually pretty poor in retrospective. I didn't feel like there was any level that really pushed me although that didn't make it any less fun. This was a really good relaxed market TM game that was a ball to play.
I especially enjoyed the graphics which where very sharp.
My one problem was that there weren't enough levels to really satisfy me plus the men walked a little too slow for my liking and you couldn't upgrade that!

Fun GAME !!!!!!!
The game was really addicting. My brother and I loved playing it and we downloaded our free trial on big fish games on my computer and my brothers computer. We nag our mum to but the game for us on her credit card as she just got one almost a year ago or so. I forgot about this game and all of a sudden this game popped into my head. I searched for it and found it very fast. I wasn't surprised to see that it has been rated 5 stars. There was never a thing i didn't like about this game.

I enjoyed this game. It is easy enough for basic players but also has advanced levels for those who want a challenge. If you like time managment games give this one a try. I hope they will come out with a Farmer's Market 2

The beginning was fun, trying to figure out how to get all sold in time. As soon as I bought it, There was no way to get past a level with 20 customers. I even tried relaxed mode. I made 19,864 dollars and still one customer left. No way to get past this level. Extremely frustrating.
