Price List for Produce Stands
I do a lot of grocery shopping from Farmer's Markets and Amish road side stands in the summer. I buy produce to can and freeze as well as eat. I want to make sure I'm getting the best deal I can so I started keeping a price book. I have five different Amish families that I shop from on a regular basis so I keep a list of produce I buy from each one as well as their best price.
By doing this I saved $2 a bushel on tomatoes- the best price I found per bushel is $10 for fresh organic tomatoes- highest price was $15 but going rate seems to be $12. It might not seem like much but when purchasing several bushels it adds up!!
