Is there a farmer's market with local produce in your area? Do you go to it? What do you buy?
Yes there is, I haven't been yet. There's also a farm co-op here that will deliver fresh fruits and veggies to your house once a week.
Finding good produce here for a good price is just so easy I don't really need a dedicated farmer's market or to have the stuff delivered to my house. The delivery thing is a neat idea but I can just pop into Sprouts or Whole Foods and get the stuff myself and have a choice in what I get.
I honestly don't know. I just always go to the grocery store.
They have one that starts sometime in June or July I think. When I remember I will go. I like to buy tomatoes, cucumbers and sweet corn.

yep. I rarely go cause it's just more convenient to go to the grocery store
There is a HUGE one downtown all summer, but we haven't been in years because there are too many people, too many dogs and too many non-traditional vendors there. We realized that we were mostly going for breakfast and then maybe picking up some produce/bread/goat cheese. I also started realizing that some of the vendors were pretty much selling the same stuff you would see in grocery stores...same strawberry boxes...yes, same brand... If we did more adventerous cooking we might go more because there are some different ethnic vendors, but we don't get too crazy.
There's also several smaller farmer's markets in most of the different suburbs/neighborhoods. Our neighborhood started one two years ago and during the first year it was at a park maybe 3/4 mile away (uphill though...) we went several times to that and I found lots of great produce and other stuff. Last year they moved it farther away to a business lot that has little to no parking--we never went for a variety of reasons.
Yes we actually have a few I normally buy meats,veggies and of course strawberries.
