quick tip shop your farmers to save on produce and more, farmers market

If you are looking to eat local and save money on produce be sure to shop at your Local Farmers’ Market. Not only are you supporting the local economy, but you can also get great deals. I have gotten organic produce for less than the price of grocery store conventional produce at my Farmer’s Market.

You can also find deals on eggs, meat, flowers, baked goods, and more!

One trick is to buy in bulk. Farmers will often give you a better deal the more you buy. If you have extra produce you can freeze it, can it, or split it with a friend. When you do preserve it you’ll save money later by avoiding having to buy items out of season.

You can go here to find a Farmers’ Market near you.

      our farmers market is about 45 minutes away and in order to save money I would have to buy bushels and split with someone or freeze. There are smaller markets around town ( trucks that set up shop once a week with items from the main farmers market) but prices are higher than the grocery store. A co-op is the better way for me to go but you have little choice about what you get and will sometimes get items you would never have thought of buying and cooking. Time to try new things I guess.

      Our farmer’s market is so expensive. And there are only two stalls of produce and everything else is artisan cheeses (ten bucks a pound), baked goods, popcorn, orchids, etc. And the produce is from the same big produce conglomerates that sell to the grocery store, and the prices are higher! And nothing is organic. I have to drive from farm to farm around here to get fresh, locally-grown, organic or low pesticide produce at a reasonable price.
