Should people selling at markets at least know what they're selling?

There's a new farmer's market near my apartment and I went to check it out today. There was a guy there selling spices and fancy teas all sitting loose in big bowls. It looked delicious and smelled even better and I couldn't wait to check them out more closely... he had a few spice blends I'd never heard of so I asked him what was in them. His exact answer - 'I haven't got a clue'. Ummmm... great way to inspire consumer confidence! If you're going to sell something exotic to your average consumer, shouldn't you at least be able to tell your them what's in it, and maybe even how to use it? (btw I didn't buy any... we have to be very careful what spice blends we use and the guy wasn't going to be able to tell me if it had peppers in it, or whether it was salt-free.) All in all, very disappointing...
