Definitely! The fruit/veg/meat etc are so much fresher and tastier than the supermarket.
You may have to pay a bit more for it but it but it lasts longer and is still competitively priced most of the time.
Yes my local farmers markets is always on the more expensive side. #havewewonlottoyet

Sure have and would again.

We often have farmers markets near our home.

The producers have such a great variety. Although they are a little more pricey, the quality is simply amazing.

That's a shame that it's pricey.

Absolutely! I love supporting the farmers and going to farmers markets. I bought this pork the other day direct from the farmer. I love the quality and it tastes better than the supermarkets. The extra benefit was it was cheaper!
I forgot that the pork was even delivered to my door as I bought in bulk. Fantastic service and I will do it again for sure.

I wish our farmers markets were cheaper! Ours are ALWAYS more expensive than the local supermarket/butcher.
A few years ago they were definitely more expensive but there are more markets now which means the food is cheaper. Great for us and the farmers as the ones I speak to say it still gives them a profit.
by Naomi
Where are your markets Naomi and British?
Perhaps the locality determines the pricing?
I agree Belinda, the prices vary based on location and state.

Sounds like two black thumbs up for us, Naomi :( lol

Mmmmmm. Unfortunately I agree Rice. My grandparents on all sides had amazing veggie patches that I always wanted when I was other. But no... not me. Herbs are good though. At least they work 😀
by Naomi
We are in Sydney... lots of "foodies" in our area that I think drive the pricing up.
I can grow mint!!! Hahahahahahaha. My one success.

I go to the farmers market every Saturday. The entire experience is great. Some of the people I buy from will save my stuff if I am running late. Much. Better Quality. Much cheaper too.
If you go late evening you can get deep discounts on some items.
Wow that is fantastic. I love the vibe of the markets, they are a fun way to do shopping, a chore I usually don't like.

We got a lot of things farm fresh when I was in the UK as a child. Farm fresh veges taste wonderful. If I am ever passing Sunday markets I stop in and buy some.
by Rice
Fresh things are the best I agree Rice. I wish I had a green thumb... I can grow herbs but that is about it. I would make a terrible farmer but happy to support them 😃

We visit farmers markets and buy mainly fruit and veg. I haven't bought any meat a a market, as it is usually incredibly expensive, but I'm sure that it would be delicious and tender. We have a farm near us that has a butchery on it, but haven't been there. There are plenty of farm gate stalls on the road side as well. I often buy berries and apples by the road side from the farmer
I would...but I am lazy and don't know where I would start looking for this sort of produce. I should...
