Do you go to a local farmer's market? 

How often?

Same one each time?

What sorts of things do you buy there?

There's one a few minutes away from my house. I go but not very often. It starts at 8 am and most of the good stuff is gone by 9. I wish they had one for people who like to sleep in! But one of the nice parts of living in the country is that there are plenty of roadside stands too.

When I get a chance...we also have this great grocery that has lots of wonderful produce and the largest selection for many miles around.

Usually we dont go around here they sell higher rate than in the store and being on a fixed income makes it hard.

We have one each weekend from March until October....We make it out there once a month or so...I love to buy fresh veggies and fruit from local farmers...I think as the boys are getting more independent (18 1/2 & 16 1/2) and have lives of their own I'll be able to afford MORE of that stuff and get out more often..  When your filling hollow legs it can get kinda spendy...

I don't go to any here, but used to go to one where I lived in California. I liked to buy the honey that came in straw like containers for my son, but just one at a time because they were a rush of sugar for him. I also loved to buy the bouquets and always have fresh flowers in my home. Oh and the fresh assortment of lettuce that made salads taste so much better.
