"[...] I head to the local farmers market to get the things that no supermarket would stock.

At the local farmers' market many prices seem to be calculated on the basis that a small production volume, or trendy adulterations, equals "desirability". The prices often make my eyes water.

The products on offer are often the things that a supermarket would store in a chiller. It is doubtful that the stallholders discard their unsold produce at the end of the day.

Yes there are occasional bargains - like very large cabbages. Otherwise they are often apparently selling on the cachet rather than value for money.
