I've been trying to make my small Westchester town home, and one thing that helps with that is to get involved in all that the community has to offer. This week, I visited the farmers market in the next town over -- in the pouring rain. I was worried it would be closed or cancelled, but although the vendors seemed a little sparse, there it was. I had to choose in a hurry, because I was getting soaked, so I didn't comparison shop or anything like that. I just grabbed what looked good.
Here's what $10 got me (still shiny from the rain):
That is: a bunch of celery, 4 big carrots, a basket of onions, 2 apples, 2 tomatoes, a head of garlic, and a pepper. The best bargain was that pepper, at just $.18, while the 2 tomatoes were probably the worst deal, at $2.70 (more than all 8 onions).
I'll definitely be back next week - hopefully with drier shopping conditions.
