You really need to get out more. The Farmers Market is not worlds cheaper than grocery stores. In fact a lot of the time grocery stores are cheaper than the market. The vast majority of sellers in the market are resellers like every other store in the city. When one of the major grocery stores has a really good sale on something like carrots you will see some of the stall owners taking carrots out of a plastic bag from the store and repackaging them and selling them at a much higher price. A tiny minority are farmers selling their own goods. We used to do a lot of canning and freezing of fruits and veggies in season and we learned the truth about pricing very quickly. There are more real farmers at the Ottawa ST. Market than the downtown market.

If you really spend a little time and compare prices you will find that shopping at the downtown market is an expensive option.
