Cost Comparison: Peaches and Nectarines
September 10, 2010 Comments Off on Cost Comparison: Peaches and Nectarines
I have to admit I prefer the nectarine to it’s fuzzy cousin the peach. The texture gets me just about every time, and I am way too demotivated to peel it(really who peels a peach?) However at the farmers market they are the same price so I throw them all in a bag and take them to the scale.
Farmer’s Market price(from a farm less that 40 miles away): $1.99 a pound
Fresh Nectarines and Peaches from Harris Teeter( Big Grocery Store Chain): $ 3.49
Simply Fresh(produce distributor): $1.99
So when it comes down to it the peaches at the produce distributor are the same price, but if you are going to drive to a separate place to get your produce, it might as well be to the farmer’s market, where you can TALK to the people that grow your food, and ask them questions about how they do it.
