Is 90 cents for a grapefruit overpriced? I think that's what we paid.

Some of the vendors are reselling the Sun Harvest fruit at the farmers market, it is the exact same fruit!!!!! They buy it in bulk, then sell mark it up and sell it. Next time you go there, look at the boxes they are taking the produce out of, it says "Sun Harvest Citrus" right on them!

Then they must be buying seconds as it isn't the same. And see? That's a prime example of why I think the produce there is a rip off....

It's still cheaper than at Sun Harvest. Either way, buy where ever you want. I have been buying from there for years, never had any issues. I would much rather keep my money in the local economy than buy from multimillion dollar companies, Sun Harvest for example,that outsource most of the labor to illegals and workers from other countries that only come in for harvesting season.
