I called in at the market today to buy some vegetables and fruit. I’ve only used the market sporadically over the years, but I can see that we could make some significant savings. Today I bought a butternut squash, a mango and a red pepper, all for £2 and all of very good quality.
This evening I went to the supermarket for our regular weekly ‘big shop’. I managed to keep our spending down to £38 (it used to be £90 a week a few years ago). I looked out for the fruit and vegetables I bought earlier to compare prices:
Butternut squash 0.61 not available
Red pepper 0.39 0.69
Mango £1.00 £2.00
As you can see, I’ve saved £1.30 just on those 3 items.
Do you use markets for your food shopping? Do you find it saves you money?
Until next time, Tawney
