Cheaper Green Tomatoes
I went to the farmer's market in Quincy last week looking to buy some green tomatoes to pickle.
One stand had baskets of them next to their red tomatoes. I wanted to buy around 20 lbs and asked how much they were are pound. "same as the red ones, $3.00 a pound" the woman replied.
I was shocked at that price.
Should I have been, have I been out of touch?
Does anyone know where I might buy some green tomatoes a little cheaper than that?
I just got back from Copley's Market.
Great prices compared to the market in Quincy. I was in here about 3 weeks ago and bought stuff from Dick's and found the prices and quality very good. I don't know why I even tried Quincy.
I asked about green tomatoes and was told they would have them Tuesday, AND only a $1 a pound.
I would try calling Kimball Fruit Farm. They offer bulk pricing and I know that their red tomatoes are $30 for 25 pounds, plus you can pick them up at the farmers market of your choice.
