Produce is more expensive in the south....but the produce in Charleston area (especially if you buy local) is nicer than the local stuff in the Atlanta area.

I can't comment on the meat prices because they are way cheaper in the USA than they are in Canada and that's my only comparison. I've been in the south now for 15 years and that's all I really know....

I can't comment on produce in the Atlanta area because I have only been to Atlanta once, and that was for a connecting flight. I went to the farmer's market last Saturday and those little potatoes (fingerling potatoes?) were $5 a pound! I am used to buying right from the farm and getting vegetables that were just picked at a quarter of the price they are here. I have made up for it though by using coupons for my other groceries.

I also think it's the 'fingerling' potatoes' -- they are kind of a trendy thing right now. Buy some of those field peas -- they are a deal, or okra <G>.

The same with heirloom tomatoes -- they are fashionable and the prices show that. Regular old tomatoes are just fine and just as yummy.
