We all know how important it is to get the recommended daily intake of fruit and vegetables but the cost of fresh produce can really add up.

Ditching the supermarket chain for $ savings


A quick tip for saving money on your produce is to skip the supermarket chain and go direct to your local market to get fresher produce at a fraction of the cost. For a family of 4, the savings for getting your fresh produce from a market can really add up. I did a quick price comparison in my last shop and I saved over $15 in my weekly shop by going to the market for my fruit and vegetables. Over a year that could equate to a saving near to $800.

Prices can be 50% lower


The other way you can save money on your fresh produce is to only purchase based on what is available seasonally. Fruits and vegetables that are in season tend to be the cheapest, as they are grown locally and do not have any of the expensive import costs attached.
