Fruit and Veg Market V's Large Chain Supermarkets

Its 2016 and were back into the frugal living lifestyle. With a wedding coming up and a large change in our lifestyle we decided it was time to start being smart with our money and smart with our food.

Today I went to the local market to buy some fruit and veg for this weeks salads, stir fry's and smoothies. We recently went to a 'Real Food Leads to Real Change' event which discussed the pros and cons of buying your fruit and veg from the market instead of from the large chain supermarket's. The main reason we decided to make the switch was because of the quality of the produce.

Here is a break down of what I purchased today and the total price, compared to if I had bought it at my local Coles.

Iceberg Lettuce
Lemons x 2
Limes x 2
Cucumber x 2
Red Onion
Red and Green Capsicum
Bean Sprouts
Coconut Oil

Total Price from Market= $49.95

Total Price from Coles = $61.97

Total saving = $12.02 PLUS my money has gone straight into a small business/farmers pocket, instead of some CEO of a large supermarket.
