So I chatting with a friend recently, and she asked…”How do you get these great prices at the farmer’s market? Do you bargain with them or something?”
I replied, “No. I just get lucky, I guess!”
But the convo got me thinking about bargaining, and how widely unacceptable it has become in our culture. In the Dominican Republic, it was commonplace to bargain. I felt uncomfortable doing it when I was first there, but after a few years and some practice, I found it less intimidating.
I decided to ask Tim, one of the farmers at my local market, what his thoughts were on bargaining. I LOVE his answer…and I think you will to!
Thoughts? Opinions on bargaining? Do share!
