we saw this on a recent trip to Palm Springs. Cucumbers were $3.50 each and peppers were the same! Talk about sticker shock! Here are three things you can do to mitigate food price increases:
1. Grow your own. Pretty simple.
2. Look for local alternatives in the grocery store. A hothouse tomato grown in BC tastes just as good as the one grown in California.
3. Hit up your local Farmers market. This is my favorite, and can’t wait for the ones around here to kick into high gear.
