Better Prices on Good Food

After growing increasingly frustrated with the prices of fruits and vegetables in the market, I decided that enough is enough. I would save my money by growing my own produce right in my own backyard. I bought some tools from the local hardware store and started clear away some land for my produce. While using one of the tools, I pulled a muscle in my back and had to put a halt to my garden plans. I went to a San Jose chiropractor who told me that I would have to stop doing work outside for a while.

The grocery stores had their claws in me a little bit longer. Since I wasn’t able to finish my garden while my back was injured, I had no choice but to go back to the store and deal with the high prices. While I was out running some errands, I ran into an old friend of mine that I knew in college. We were glad to see each other, as it had been years since we had last met. We started talking about our lives, and I told her about the garden I was trying to make because of the market prices.

My friend told me that there was another way that I could get affordable produce while my back was healing. She had been going to a farmer’s market for a while and told me that they have much better prices for the value. She had been able to get pounds of produce for a fraction of the cost that the markets were offering. I asked her if she had a minute to go with me and she did. We went to the market and she helped me get some food and load it into my car. I’m glad I ran into her.
