Farmers markets are popping up everywhere, and for good reason! It's fun to buy local produce in a festive market on a bright sunny day.
Talk with farmers and fellow shoppers for more tips.
But what if you're on a budget? Here are some money saving tips to take along with you to the market.
- Avoid going to the market on an empty stomach. You're less likely to buy more than you bargained for!
- Bring along a 'flexible' shopping list that gives you an idea of what you need and leaves room for what's available. "Fruit for five meals" leaves it open to whatever fruit is a bargain this week.
