Wait, Real Food From Real People Is *less* Expensive?

Entry posted by domesticactivist · - 185 views

Most of have an image of the local farmers' market as the place where rich people go to buy their expensive heirloom tomatoes, eggs, and artisan cheeses. Turns out, though, markets are not just a place for rich folks to shop.

In a [url="http://www.theatlantic.com/life/archive/2011/05/the-farmers-market-myth/238661/"]recent study done in Vermont and published in The Atlantic[/url], researchers found that, with the exception of eggs and potatoes, farmers' market produce was actually [i]cheaper[/i] than its grocery store equivalent.

Plus, you don't have to deal with fluorescent lighting, terrible chemical smells, and rude staff!

Find your local farmers' market at [url="http://www.localharvest.org/farmers-markets/"]LocalHarvest.org[/url]!

What are some of your favorite farmers' market buys?
