Shop at farmer's markets or CSA.

Farmer's markets provide great prices for locally grown produce that is sold without big store brand marketing. CSAs or Community Supported Agriculture may also be an option for accessing the same product at an even better somewhat bulk price. In a CSA, typically, the farmer provides you with a box or a specific amount of weight or percentage of the share of the harvest each week.

In some areas, joining a co-op is a similar option in which you can choose to “contribute” (money) for a particular week’s offering of in-season produce. Each member who contributes that week will receive basically the same selection of produce. In addition, the co-op may offer for an additional cost bulk packages of seasonal canning fruits and vegetables. If the regular weekly selection is more than you can use or freeze, find a friend to share the expense and bounty!
