Some of the other things that were available were eggplant, fresh basil, cantaloupe, watermelon, onions, beets, yellow squash, some canned vegetables and jams, and apple cider.
I’m not sure how great of a deal I got this week. If I would have bought all of these same fruits and vegetables, but the ones that were on sale (not locally grown) in the grocery store itself, I’m guessing it would have been about the same price, maybe even slightly less. However, if I would have purchased these same locally grown products at the prices listed at the store, it would have cost me over $20. The market is also open to the public, so prices are listed by each thing. Next week I will keep track of the difference.
Since I’m out of wine to write about, I decided I’m going to document my CSA experience and evaluate if it is worth the price or not. I am willing to pay more to support small local farmers, for sure, and especially if the quality is better and fresher.
I’ll keep you updated on what I make with our produce, as well! Tonight I made BLTs and sweet corn and it was delicious! The corn was (almost) as good as Dad’s fresh from the field! That alone, to me, makes this week a win!
