Do you buy your fruit and vegetables from the supermarket, or do you buy them from a market or specialised fruit shop?

How does this compare price wise as well as quality wise, to the supermarket?

I buy my fruit and veggies from a specialised fruit shop which is in the same shopping centre as Woolworths and Coles.

I like this much better as although a bit more expensive, it is far fresher, and better quality.

Some of the supermarkets have some good quality goods however I find them very expensive, and would rather support a smaller shop for this type of thing.

I try hard to support the local green grocers and manage this most of the time. I have had "bad" fruit and veggies from the giant supermarkets and they are always in trouble and in the news about their goods being "fresh". If the supermarkets continue to push out small business the consumer looses out in the end as the supermarkets will then dictate and monopolise the prices,,,,
One thing about living in North Qld is the lack of loads of Green Grocers(or Fruit and Vegie shops)!! There are probably 3 really good ones which I like to support,despite their often higher prices than supermarkets. I really love to buy from the weekend Farners Markrets,and do this when possible. I must admit that the supermarkets up here do actually have some excellent quality fruit and vegeytables and usually at excellent prices,so I confess that I will buy from these as well.......
It depends when we're shopping and what there is available. We go to the fruit shop when it's open, but buy fruit and veg from the supermarket if the fruit shop is shut or we're in a hurry, assuming the fruit and veg there is okay (it varies).
I think the fruit shop can be cheaper.

All depends where you go of course.

I buy from both, I'm always watching for a bargain...as I live on them (for the last 11 weeks.)

I buy fruit from both the supermarket and the market. The former is more convenient, but the latter is much better value.
It depends where I am and how much time I have. I will usually buy from Aldi or the grocer. If I am running low on time I just buy from Woolworths.

Either, depends on the quality!
I buy mine from a supermarket, just for convenience sake. They are usually cheaper and I don't find a major difference in quality.
Mainly from the supermarket but it is lovely to go to a fresh market every so often...don't get there much

As much as I love markets I buy all my stuff from the supermarket. I generally do my shopping with both the kids and it is too much trouble and effort to go into several different shops. if I can't get it from woollies we miss out!
I buy my fruit and veg at the supermarket out of convenience - I would love if I had the time to go to specialist stores but I just don't ever seem to have the time

from a specialised fruit shop, only buy potatoes onions pumpkin from coles and woolies when doing grocery shopping, never carrots from coles or woollies they go moudy very quickly also they do not taste right.
Mostly supermarket. Nothing wrong with the quality.
Sometimes fruit shop if they've a fruit eg persimmon, that not stocked elsewhere.
I buy all my fruit & vegetables from Aldi, but they certainly don't the chose as in your lovely photo you used, Finy! We don't have a fruit shop near our Aldi's.
