Market Not Supermarket
Here is what I bought from the local market for £1.55. The supermarket price would have been £3.86 due to having to buy in packages - a saving of £2.31. I have bought exactly the amount I require, therefore there will be no waste. Not only that, bar the potatoes due to the weight, all came in environmentally friendly, traditional brown paper bags. None of the excessive plastic packaging. The taste, compared to supermarket produce, is by far the more superior. So those people who say they can't afford to buy fresh fruit and veg are obviously not looking far enough (or close enough as the case may be) to see how much they can save. So instead of trying to budget by shopping for supermarket bland names, sorry I mean supermarket brand names, support your local market/greengrocers for those of you who still have them. To eat well needn't cost the earth in more sense than one.
