For the 5th consecutive year I have taken it upon myself to compare Bridgeport Farmers Market pricing with our local grocers. Again, I picked a Sunday during the peak season and gathered pricing info from all of our meat and produce vendors to arrive at an average price. Remember the word “average”, so some vendors are higher and some are lower than these prices. Like American capitalism itself, it’s a free market and the farmers set their own prices.
This year there is not much more for me to say about this that I haven’t already stated over the past 4 years. See the links at the bottom to look at those past surveys. The one thing I will explain are the changes I decided to make this year.
First off I decided to name names. It was really silly to keep using “Store A” and “Store B”. Everyone knows who I was referring to so this year it’s Wal-Mart and Kroger instead.
Secondly, this year is more of an apples-to-apples comparison…
