    Good tips for shopping the local farmers’ market. Here in the PacNW, we have local markets several times a week. One tip I would add to ensure best produce for the lowest cost: choose the produce at peak season. Right now that means spinach, kale, lettuce, snap peas and new potatoes. Although some items like fresh basil are available, it’s greenhouse grown and expensive.

    This is a great tip. I’ve also read that it’s always less expensive wherever you buy your produce to buy what is in season. If it’s not in season, it’s going to cost you more wherever you buy it. Produce tastes better in season too. Simple advice but true.
