Actually, local farmer's market prices are not that much lower, depending on the fruits and vegetables, the cost is much higher. That also includes the artisan breads and specialties, for example, I paid $7 for a homemade olive bread whereas at a Trader's Joe $2 which was smaller, whilst another $5 a commercial Local Market.
Of course the sizes were different as were the prices, however, the homemade and Local Market were almost similar in size.
I truly believe in supporting my local markets, for I'm a crafter myself designing wire beaded jewelry and such.
