Headed to the Farmers Market? This reader knows how to score a deal! 🥬🥕
With hot weather upon us, your might find a deal by shopping outdoors instead of indoors. This week’s Happy Friday reader, Justina, is stocking up on produce at local farm stands. If she hits the stand at just the right time, she’s scoring loads of fresh veggies and fruits for one low cost. 🙌 Here’s how!
“We have quite a few Farmer’s Markets, Produce Stands, Open Farm Pick markets here on the east coast. It is that fresh produce time again!
“Check if your favorite place has Reduced Price Bag/Box day(s) for Quick Use. Some farmer’s markets near me have a weekly sale on reduced fruits & veggies that allow you to fill a big box for just $10! What a deal!”
That’s a great deal, Justina! I’ll certainly be checking my local farmer’s markets and produce stands for reduced prices! In this economy, I’ll save on groceries any way I can! Thank you so much for sharing this savings tip with us! 💛
