Farmers Are Overcharging.
Farmers market is a great place to get fresh vegatables. However this year they have jacked up the price of tomatoes to $2. a pound. I noticed that a lot of people are not buying. Good. There are some booths that have them for a $1.50 pound. The tomatoes don't seem to have a nice taste this year. If you want a real bargain on fresh fruit and vegtables go to the drive in building at the rear where wholesalers sell in crate lots. Customers then take them to the tables and break them down to shares. You can get good deals this way
The best of fresh produce and local products.. In Short This state-run operation is the shopping mall of all things fresh. What it sacrifices by not offering strictly local produce, it certainly makes up for in variety. Fresh fruits and vegetables are shipped in daily from nearby farms and neighboring states. Two buildings are devoted to flowers and bedding plants, in addition to a variety of other gardening accessories. The rest of the space features specialty shops like Ford's Fancy Fruits and BJ's Candy Garden.
