It kind of depends on your definition of quality - for me, as well as the product being wholesome, it has to do with how and where food is grown and how it's sourced and paid for all along the line. And one of the differences I appreciate is that by offering seasonal food farmers' markets help to draw attention to seasonality and the implications of ignoring it.
