Farmers' Market BBQ

On a recent trip to the farmers’ market in Brattleboro, VT, our Savvy Organic Shopper came across organic ground beef for $6 per pound and grass-fed beef for $8 per pound. She also found organic and grass-fed stew meat, both priced at $8 per pound. Did you know, though, that organic cows are fed grass as a substantial part of their diet? By law, organic cows must have access to the outdoors and graze on rich and nutritious grass for a minimum of one third of their lives.

Farmers Markets

The Savvy Organic Shopper stopped by the Dupont Circle Farmers Market in Washington, D.C.  and found competitive prices on local, organic foods. Vine-ripe organic tomatoes were being sold for $3.00 per pound, while conventional tomatoes were $4.50 per pound. Organic eggplant was $2.60 per pound, whereas conventional eggplant was $3.60 per pound. At $2.00 per pound, organic cucumbers were also a dollar cheaper per pound than their conventional counterparts.
