Ruhlman on Local and Affordable

September 12, 2008 at 8:05 am

Consistently astute food writer Michael Ruhlman posts today about how the costs of food at his local farmer’s market are not significantly greater than the supermarket. Says Mr. Ruhlman:

For $71 bucks, and a few staples, I think I’ve got four great meals for four, plus a couple of lunches.

He’s right, and not just about Cleveland markets. I shop weekly at the Federal Plaza Farmer’s Market and I find great deals every week.

As Rob pointed out, if look for seasonal abundance, your local eating options remain high.
