So we have this awsome Farmer's Market in town that has a plethora of organic foods brought in fresh from local amish / ameninites (sp?). In any case, this food has several advantages over supermarket foods:
* Not processed
* Better taste
At the same time, when I'm buying things from the market, I'm getting free things left and right for buying over X amount of food. I got a free LB of sausage when I bought 3 LB's of lean ground beef. I got 4 free hotdog things when I bought 2 dozen organic / free range eggs.
I really think these markets are superior to supermarket giants. It may be nessasary to still use both, but I think you can get better meats, steaks, chicken, eggs, cheeses, for cheaper.
