Buy Organic and Local, Save Money

What? It's true! I feel like organic has been unfairly maligned as being more expensive than non-organic produce, but maybe that's because you've only shopped at high-end grocery stores. The fact is, you can save a lot of money by shopping at farmer's markets. For instance, an organic lemon at two mainstream grocers was $1/each. At the farmer's market, 25-cents each! That's a 300% savings. One more tip, if you go to the farmer's market towards closing time, you can often get STEALS on produce because the farmer's don't want to take it back with them. To find a farmer's market near you visit localharvest.org.
