The term Greengrocer or Produce Market

The very best Greengrocers.......
Greengrocer or Supermarket - which is cheaper?
It shouldn't really be about the price, its the value that should be measured. The value of fruit and veg deteriorates quickly and so does the value. Slow grown, local produce can also taste better than the supermarket. So don't just measure the value of your veg by price or you may end up with tasteless carrots, grown quickly to reduce waste during production whereas your local greengrocer may sell a slow grown variety superior in taste.
How to decide where to buy the best fruit and veg
Feedback from customers is a great way of deciding if putting the extra effort walking a few more yards to your local greengrocer is worth it for your fruit and vegetables supplies. Of course, many greengrocers today sell even more, including eggs and milk so that extra few yards can certainly be worth it.
