Shopping at Farmers' Markets vs. Grocery Stores

It's no secret that I'm a fan of farmers' markets. Not only is fresh produce so essential to good cooking, but also, I like to support local agriculture as much as possible. The supposed higher price of the farmers' market is probably the biggest reason many people avoid it. Luckily, Becks and Posh did a comparison shop between a major grocery store and a popular, local farmers' market. While certainly not all farmers' markets or grocery stores are the same, the results of this experiment are quite interesting.
