I am hearing about this "Farmer's Market" but I do not know where it is. Would be interested in finding out where everyone goes for good fruits and vegetables. We were a little disappointed with Harris Teeter's. Although, they had other things we liked, we found the veggies and produce to be a little high.

We go every 2 weeks to the Yorkmount location (the main market). I go for the produce, my Daughter for the Chocolatier, my Wife for the bread. Yesterday I bought: Chinese eggplant, cilantro and basil (will have both growing in garden next year), red peppers (.75 each vs $2 ea @ HT), green peppers (.50 ea), yellow peppers (.75 ea), and bagged long hot peppers. Also got sweet corn (4/$2), bagged peeled garlic ($2), lemon grass for curry, radishes (.50 bag), and broccoli. This is a great time to go, especially on Saturdays when all of the vendors are there. We dont eat much fruit, but the place was loaded with peaches and melons too!

Agreed! Tonight for dinner I made sausage and peppers, and it didnt cost me a fortune! It seems shopping at HT that the produce costs more than the meat. Tomorrow night I am grilling, and will try to prepare the chayote squash that way.
