Well, I guess there's a point where politeness may not be the goal ;)

comment Difference between “kaufen”, “einkaufen”, “aufkaufen” and “ankaufen”
Grammatically, yes. It means that you're engaging in the activity of walking on the farmer's market. Sounds strange, though. If you intend to say that you are engaging in a leisurely stroll across the farmer's market "Ich gehe über den Bauernmarkt." would be a much better alternative.

That last one should have been spelled "Bauernmarkt" (with an 'n'). Don't want anyone to learn an incorrect spelling here ;)

In this particular example, both have about the same meaning and neither indicates that the speaker is already there. The second has a tiny bit more of an emphasis on the place / direction. It is possible to entirely omit "einkaufen" and it would still be a perfectly correct sentence (though it would leave us guessing what the speaker is planning to do at the farmer's market): "Ich gehe auf den Bauermarkt."
