My girlfriend just gave me a handy tip.
Farmers Markets are usually cheaper and fresher than supermarkets for your fruit and veg however, if you are one of the last people at the markets, you will often catch the farmers cutting their prices to get rid of their stock so they don’t have to lug it back home!
I look forward to giving this tip a try!

  • It’s a good tip BUT I’d probably rock up earlier to get anything you’re definitely needing to buy and then settle down have a bite to eat and wait until towards the end to wander around and try to grab a bargain.

  • Sounds like a great idea, I like farmers markets, but have not tried when they are going to close…

  • We have a local farmers market twice a month. Only problem is parking is horrendous and I really don’t want to fight to get a park! I will check it out one day and maybe the savings will entice me to go!

  • It is definitely true! We do this often and it is usually still great quality!

  • It’s quite a common practice indeed. Also at supermarkets or bakeries you can find discounted prices at the end of the day.
