Everyone is always trying to save a buck, especially me. I carefully look at each grovery store add to find the best deals. A lot of times those sale items are not things I normally buy, they are still too expensive or they don't fit into my semi-healthy eating lifestyle.
I can rarely win with produce. I buy it and it goes bad within a couple day. It is frustrating and a waste of money (sometimes). I've heard locally/organic grown produce lasts longer. So, I thought I would give the Ramona Farmer's Market a whirl. I'd never been to a farmer's market but I know others that have. I hear nothing but good things.
I high tailed it to Collier Park, where our Farmer's market is, and immediately I was slightly disappointed. 6 booths. That's it? Only one of those booths held any sort of produce. There was a bread stand (against diet rules!! run away! run away!), a knife sharpening stand, fresh squeezed , plants, cookie lee jewelry (uh huh?), and produce. That's it.
Honestly, I was expecting more. Nuts, fruits, vegetables, bread, etc. I am sure that this is true for most Farmer's Markets. Unfortunately, not this one.
I wonder, are there any good Farmer's Markets in San Diego where I can score some good deals?
It wasn't a total loss. I did get a few pieces of fruit and some squash.
