GAP farmer's market

redgirl | Nov 4, 2006 03:45 PM's been a while since i've been to the farmer's market ... tend to shop at co-op/fairway/etc. i went today on a gloriously sunny saturday morning and was dismayed to find out that there are very few resources for organic fruits and veggies there. if you really want to buy overwhelmingly organic produce, it would be pretty difficult there. in fact, i don't think i saw a single organic apple around (may have missed something but i thought i looked at everything.)
i did decide, however, to take a chance on a depaulo's (sp?) turkey for this year's tgiving. people on this board said it's good and i'm hoping it's a notch up from a murray's turkey (which i can get at staubitz and/or union market.) the farmer's market turkey is pricing at $2.20/lb while union says that they are selling the murray's turkeys for $1.79lb.
i took a flyer on the pork guy and had a long talk with him then took 4 pork chops but was stunned to find out it was almost $20! eek. i did buy them and man, they better be really good. but i think that may be a bit too dear for the future.
lastly, i did love the fish people. really fresh fish and good prices.
