Check Out the Rochester Public Market This Weekend!

 

If you need a little inspiration to get up early and hit the Rochester public market this Saturday, a little run-down of my trip last weekend might just do the trick.

If you need a little inspiration to get up early and hit the Rochester public market this Saturday, a little run-down of my trip last weekend might just do the trick.

 

Here’s what I was able to pick up:

 

  • Huge bag of three heads of different lettuce - $2.50 (We typically can make salads all week with this as it’s so fresh)

(Wegman’s price for 3 heads of lettuce $1.89x3=$5.67)

  • Two acorn squash (~3 lbs) - $1.00

(Wegman’s price: $.99/lb for 3 lbs= $2.97)

  • One Sugar Pumpkin - $1.50

(Unsure of Wegmans price)

  • Six Honey Crisp Apples (~3 lbs) - $1.00

(Wegman’s price: $.99/lb for 3lbs = $2.97)

 

Total Savings over Wegman’s prices: At least $7.12

 

If you still need convincing take a look at the apple fritter that we bought for $1.50 from a local baker’s stall.  It was literally the size of my head and absolutely delicious.

I plan to make pumpkin puree out of my pumpkin for baked goods tomorrow and I’ll let you know how it goes!
