I have been tracking farmer’s market prices all summer…in my head. I wish I had them written down, but somehow between carrying a baby and a bag of farm fresh produce, I don’t have a free hand to write things down.
My conclusion…it’s hit or miss.
Sometimes prices in the grocery store are less than the farmer’s market…and other times prices are much less at the farmer’s market. Depends on the week, the crop, the supply and the demand at the farmer’s market. This summer, I scored some amazingly cheap green peppers, and some giant squash for only $.50 a piece. Both “lucky” finds!
So I’m curious…do you save more money by shopping at the farmer’s market?! Or is shopping for produce at the grocery store less expensive in your area?!
