I just found this community and I think it is real neat.
I live in Richmond, VA. I am not sure where everyone else is from, but any of you have local farmers markets or community gardens? I am only cooking for me and my fiance so my grocery list may be a bit shorter. I cook everywhere meal we eat. So I am buying for 3 meals a day plus snacks and it can add up.
I feel that going to farmers markets to get fruits and vegetables is cheaper than the grocery store. Sometimes certain foods are more at a farmers market like corn, but I think fresh corn tastes better so I am willing to "splurge." Some farmers markets sell locally grown breads, which are more but taste lovely!
I just found a community garden near me, so I am looking forward to joining and trying to grow some of my own vegetables I am always buying. I live in an apartment with no yard and the community garden is a quick 3 minute bike ride. Has anyone gone down this road to help curb some of the grocery costs?
