Best Ever Farmers Market

We were fortunate to escape the cold over the holidays by making our way to Florida (the long way via car).  Jen's folks have a house in the Delray Beach/Boynton Beach area (East Coast) and one of our first stops when we arrive is a produce market in Lake Worth.   During our last trip we were struck by how great the deals were so we saved the receipt.  Seriously, it's so good you may find yourself thinking that it may be worth moving down just to be close to this place.

What: Rorabeck Produce Market, the BEST EVER Farmers Market. 

Why it's the Best: two reasons, the first is location.  Ninety percent of all the fresh produce during the winter months comes from Florida, so you get the product without the transportation cost, and the second is the lower cost of living.  Rorabeck's is what a real "direct from the farm" market looks, and feels like.  Not the kind of farmers market we're used to in DC. 

How We Know: let's let the numbers do the talking.  Here's a sample of produce prices from area supermarkets taken from the Wednesday (1/14/10) inserts in the Washington Post.

Craving Level: Everytime we're in Florida.  If you're in Florida during the winter months, find a produce or farmers market.   You're inner bargain hunter will love it!
