I recently purchased these cute little succulents at a local farmer's market but I'm not quite sure what the names of them are. I would really appreciate it if anyone could help identify them just so I can be sure I'm giving them the proper care they need!
Thanks so much!

|The one at the top (12 o'clock) in the first photo is a Burrow's Tail (Sedum morganianum).
4 o'clock in probably an Echeveria.
Can you take closer photos so only one plant is in each photo?

|The one at the upper right in the first picture looks like a Crassula, maybe about to flower. The one at the lower right in the same picture is an Echeveria.
The Echeverias Database
The other three look sort of Sedum-ish, but the top plant is not Sedum morganianum, which has bigger, fatter leaves.
It is also not Sedum burrito, the other common burro's tail sedum. I could not begin to tell you what it actually is, beyond that info.
All your plants will enjoy similar care. Strong light, good drainage, water when dry. If they're going to be indoors, find a spot right by your sunniest window. The Echeveria is the one that looks most in need of a bigger pot. Be sure the container you use has holes at the bottom. Try to use an airy mix with good drainage. Use pots that are wider than deep, and go in small steps if and when you do repot.
