Plant City Farmer’s Markets

I love to go to the Farmer’s Market.  The produce there is mostly local, fresh, and super cheap.  This weekend Kelly and I decided that we wanted to make a Blueberry-Peach Cobbler, so I ran out to Plant City with the boys this morning and was wowed again by what I found.  I’m not sure why I am consistently surprised by the prices, but I always am. 

Earlier in the year, Andy and I did a price comparison between the Farmer’s Market and Publix…what we found is that there is roughly a 4 to 1 mark up at Publix.  Examples: this basket of peaches was $6.99 including the basket, bell peppers and cucumbers are 4 for a $1, large watermelons are $2, potatoes are 2 pounds for $1, and so on and so on… Most of the time I leave with a large produce box full of fresh food and spend about $20. 

Davy loves to help pick out the veggies, this has been a great way to teach him about fruits and vegetables…  If you want to check them out for yourself…Take I-4 East, exit Branch Forbes Rd, there are two right off of the expressway or you can follow the signs to Parksdale Farms.
