How is Your Farmer's Market?

How is your farmer's market? Does it help you to save money?

My local market is excellent but can be pricey. Buying normal vegetables from the immigrant farmers can be cheap but organic from the fancier farmers can be very expensive. If I don't pay attention to the prices it's easy to spend $10 and still not have all the ingredients for a whole meal.

I also have learned not to trust that the produce is always high quality. For the most part it is but I've also spent $5 on a bag of lettuce and found when I got home that it was rotting.

It's a fun experience when it's not too busy and I like supporting local farmers, particularly the ones who are trying to do right by the environment.
