I like a lot to make my shopping from private market where come peoples who sail what they have in own gardens. I like walk, talk with people, i like fresh vegetables, i like simple smile, i like simple people who sail what they work. Is more nice when you buy natural products, and socialize with people same time.

Market in Europe is much different than here in USA. I like European market much better. I can visit Farmers Market only on Saturday morning, when they are coming from other states. In Europe there are small markets open everyday with fresh fruits and veggies.... I wish we have it here...

We really don't have vegetable & fruit markets where I live (the US) - but we occasionally have farmers markets, but not very often, so I usually buy from the stores & supermarkets in my area. I do like going to farmers markets, though, because it's nice knowing that you're not supporting some huge corporation, and instead you're supporting smaller, more independent farmers. I like the idea of farmers markets & I wish we had more of them!

We have here so many farmer or private markets, where people are so nice, and sail fresh vegetables and fruit, and all this are from theirs farmer, not from other country...any way, we have very natural vegetables here.

I like to buy from a farmer's market (probably the same thing as your private market), but I grow what I can, too. I much prefer natural and local products over the grocery store offerings. I know some of the vendors at the farmer's market, so that's a plus, too.

I buy vegetables, in supermarket, and in the nearest market in our home, Sometimes we go to Alabang and Divisoria, because the vegetable here is much lesser and fresh than in the supermarket and in the nearest market in our home, I like also like walking so when we go to the nearest market we walk always, it is also a kind of exercise.

I'm currently buying my fruits and vegetables from the grocery store. Now that it's summer though and I'm not working I'm going to start going to the Farmer's Market. It's held every Friday, downtown, for so many hours. Before I could never go because I was working - but I'm off for the summer. I can't wait to start supporting the local farmers and to get those fresh veggies!!

Our house is near in the market so most of the times I buy vegetables here. But when we go to the mall, I also buy in the supermarket for me to save time. Either way, the vegetables are fresh. It's just a matter of choosing the right ones.

I would buy vegetable and fruits from the vegetable and fruit markets respectively as I get good quality vegetables and fruits for cheaper rates and i am not interested in buying them in the super markets as we do not get fresh vegetables and fruits often. Moreover at this point of recession and economic slowdown, it is absolutely necessary to diversify our spendings. Only by doing that, it is absolutely possible for us to to revive the lost economy. Although we are not going to contribute much, but our actions will help all kind of people to gain something thus resulting in an All-win situation. Hence I would suggest everyone to diversify their spendings and earnings respectively.

I definitely go to supermarket. I find it a lot more convenient if I go to the supermarket. One more thing , is that I make sure that I will maximize my time well, that I also need to go to the department store to buy something or to go to payment centers to pay my bills. In this way , I would be able to minimize expenditures of gasoline.

I buy vegetables in the supermarket, they are nicely packed and looks clean.

it is very convenient to buy in supermarkets but to buy in the public market will save you almost half the price. and you can see the really fresh produce there because it is not yet refrigerated.

We have a Farmer's Market right next door to our apartment, that's open every Saturday morning. They sell all kinds of fruits, vegetables, meat, eggs, cheese, and other farm products. My husband goes up there every Saturday morning and buys the fruits, and vegetables that we will need for the week.
