Farmers Market Fruit Haul – How to Buy Cheaper

Fruit haul at the Farmers Market, minus the cranberry juice, for only $24!

Always ask for ripe or bruised fruit, you get huge discounts!

All #‎organic‬ and ‪#‎rawvegan‬ :))

And you don’t need to be neither of those to consume more fruit in your diet!:)

My bigger suggestion how to get cheaper produce is to FAMILIARIZE yourself with the prices in all stores near you and to know when they offer sales. Big stores like Whole Foods, QFC and Safeway often discount most of their produce in late evening because they want to sell it before it goes, what manufacturers consider to be, ‘bad,’ even though it still in a great quality. It is even more affordable to get your greens at those places because you can often buy bigger quantity in half price there.

Another option, unavailable for me because I don’t drive, is to buy in bulk from stores like Grocery Outlet or from Chinese markets.

And, of course, last but not least is the good old student-friendly fella Trader Joe, where I shop most frequently.:) When fruit is not in season, for example, I buy it frozen as it gets much cheaper than fresh one (like berries, mango, pineapple, etc…)

 

Let me know in the comments if there are more tricks how to buy cheaper in your area:)
