$ 10 for three tomatoes and a dozen eggs? Yeah, that sounds about right!That is exactly how much I paid yesterday at the Carroll Gardens Fresh Market. Yes, the tomatoes where the heirloom type. Yes, the eggs were organic. But you have to admit, that is a bit steep.
I came home from the market with my ridiculously light shopping bag, feeling slightly stupid. I am trying to buy my produce at the market, but I am starting to feel as though I am being taken to the cleaners every time I shop there.
I have to say: the tomato tasted incredible, as it should for a $ 2.00 tomato ( the lb. price was over $6.00). But who are we kidding here. I think that we have learned to accept such lousy produce at the supermarket, that we feel the sun-ripened verity is worth any premium. I don't mind paying a bit more but lets stay real here.
Am I the only one who finds the prices outrageous? What do you say, dear reader.
