Farmers market score

Now THIS is why I love shopping at our farmers market so much!

Not only do they sell locally grown goodies, they also operate as a produce reseller. I sometimes find national brand produce in containers at great discounts (and no sales tax.)

Today I found a Phone-A-Friend worthy deal on strawberries: $10 a flat!

So I phoned my friend and picked up a few flats for each of us. Ok, I kept one and she snagged the other four that were left. I'm still wondering if I should have grabbed two for myself but I picked up other goodies

Basket of plums $6
Basket of soup tomatoes $4
Basket of potatoes $1

So the grand total for 5 flats of strawberries and assortment of other fruits and vegetables was $61! That's a 75 percent savings!

And now to go home and make jam and maybe some wing sauce...
