I buy loose garlic at the Farmers Market. The grower suggested I store it at room temperature, so I keep a small basket of fresh garlic on my counter.

No, they should not be refrigerated. I keep my garlic in an open container in a cool dark cabinet.

I was told to keep it in a cool dark place also. I prefer my basement as it is fairly dark. I keep it in a basket. I have had it last at least 6 mos.
