I'm bummed to see the season of farmer's markets come to an end. I'm also sad that I didn't make it to as many this year as I had hoped. I did score some great deals though the few times I made it to them.
I love browsing the "bumped, bruised and ugly" section because there is usually great produce there for really reduced prices. One of our local markets sells baskets with said awful looking produce for $1. One day while shopping for other items I gathered up 6 baskets filled with peppers and tomatoes which would work wonderfully for canning. Usually after a little "plastic surgery" the icky parts can be removed and you're left with a great amount of produce for much less then they would've cost if they had looked pretty! :)
After chopping it all up this is what I stashed away in my freezer for only $6:
Have you scored any great deals this year at Farmer's Markets?
