Fresh ways to save some green at the farmers market

The Free Press WV

The difference between the produce at farmers markets and supermarkets is more than “tomayto” versus “tomahto.” And buying fresh fruit and vegetables at farmers markets offers opportunities to save money in ways you might not find at a grocery store.

The produce sold at most supermarkets is typically harvested before it’s ripe, says Chris Curtis, executive director of Seattle Neighborhood Farmers Markets. Then it’s transported — often long distances — before arriving at the store. The many people involved in getting a tomato from the vine to the store and, finally, into your tote may get a slice of your payment, she says. That doesn’t leave much for the farmer.

When you buy a tomato at a farmers market, however, “almost all of your dollar is going directly to the grower,” Curtis says. That grower picked the produce ripe, soon before selling it. A recently harvested peach tastes better than that “hard little green ball” sold at large retailers, she says.

HOW TO SAVE MONEY AT FARMERS MARKETS

Here’s how to get the most for your money when buying produce and other farmers market goods:

1. GET TO KNOW THE VENDORS. Many vendors give deals to folks they know, says Gabrielle Lupton, a baker at Bubble & Brown Bakery, which sells goods at Salt Lake City farmers markets. To build that kind of relationship with a vendor, become a regular. Consistently buy from that seller and turn to her for bulk and special orders, like a custom cake from a baker.

In addition to scoring deals — and maybe even a friendship — becoming a regular gives you “an inside scoop on the variability of the season,” says Nina Gruber, outreach and development coordinator for Seattle Neighborhood Farmers Markets. For example, you may be among the first customers to know when farmers will start selling peaches, she says. You may also learn when peach prices are expected to change with supply and demand throughout the season.

2. BUY “UGLY” PRODUCE. “Seconds” or “No. 2s” are fruits and vegetables that taste the same as other produce but look a little off — they may be misshapen or bumpy, for example. Farmers typically sell them more cheaply than the perfect-looking produce. “It’s something farmers have been doing since the dawn of farmers markets,” Gruber says.

Get a deal on seconds and you’re not just saving money — you’re also helping to reduce food waste . Even if you prefer eating or serving flawless produce, you can follow Gruber’s lead and use seconds for cooking, baking and making jam. She buys a box of No. 2 tomatoes, then cooks and freezes batches of pasta sauce. “Then I have sauce for the rest of the year,” she says.

3. PAY IN CASH. Access to a credit or debit card — and dozens of freshly baked pastries — can put your grocery budget in danger. Lupton says that customers paying with a card typically outspend those who use cash. Consider bringing cash, spending a set amount and leaving your cards at home. (This is a reliable money-saving tip for most kinds of shopping trips.)

4. SHOP LATE. Vendors don’t want to be stuck with unsold inventory so “they’ll start slinging deals toward the end of the day,” Gruber says. For example, in the final 30 minutes the market is open, you may be able to snag a bag of apples for half the price you would have paid first thing in the morning.

The tradeoff is that there will be a smaller selection of products at the end of the day, Gruber says.

5. GET DISCOUNTS ON BULK PURCHASES. Remember, vendors want to offload as much of their product as possible. So they’re incentivized to cut a deal if you’re interested in buying a lot of it, Lupton says. Ask vendors what prices they can offer for the quantity you want, such as a dozen cookies or two pounds of potatoes. They may throw in a few extra potatoes or charge you less for a batch of cookies than they would have for 12 individual treats.

Oregon Horse Sues Former Owner for $100K

The Free Press WV

A horse named Justice may well get his sweet revenge. The 8-year-old American Quarter Horse and Appaloosa cross is suing his former owner for $100,000 with help from a legal advocacy group for animals, the Oregonian reports. Justice is seeking damages from Gwendolyn Vercher, 51, who was sentenced in July to three years’ probation for first-degree animal neglect. According to court documents, Vercher “denied Justice adequate food and shelter for months, abandoning him to starve and freeze. As a result of this neglect, Justice was left debilitated and emaciated. He continues to suffer from this neglect, including a prolapsed ##### from frostbite.“ Justice’s injuries will apparently require extensive care for the rest of his life, which makes it difficult to find him a home.

Although a horse plaintiff is rare, animals have legally protected rights, according to Sarah Hanneken, one of the attorneys representing Justice for the Animal Legal Defense Fund. “Victims of crimes can sue their abusers and animals are sentient beings that are recognized as victims under Oregon law,“ she says. “So with that premise, we’ve come to the conclusion that animals can sue their abusers and we’re confident of our stance in this case.“ If Justice prevails, the damages awarded will be deposited into a trust and used to pay for his medical care. Justice now lives at a non-profit horse rescue in Oregon, People reports. If he wins, he might just kick up his heels.

NATIONAL and Local FEEDER & STOCKER CATTLE SUMMARY

RECEIPTS:       Auctions     Direct    Video/Internet     Total
This Week        250,300     65,000           61,000      376,300

Compared to last week, steers and heifers traded from 2.00 higher to 2.00 lower nationwide.  Ranchers have a very vested interest in the cattle trade every week as they try to gauge when to sell their harvest (calf crop) for the year. 

It may not seem much, however a 10.00 swing in prices can add up in a hurry; $60 or $70 per head on a 100 head cow herd is a significant amount. 

Feeder cattle buyers have purchased replacement feedlot cattle on either side of steady this week as the market is looking for direction from any type of news that could hit the airwaves. 

Auction trading volume on this report just barely topped 250K this week. 

It is only the second occurrence that large since early February, indicating cattle producers are willing to market feeders at these prices.

This week, packers were willing to take on some inventory and bought fed cattle on Thursday morning in the Southern Plains at 126.00, 2.00 higher than last week.  Weekly negotiated cash trading volume in Kansas topped 30,000 head for the second week in a row; the last time that occurred was January 2016. 

In TX/OK/NM, the rolling three week average of negotiated trading volume surpassed 10,000 head for only the second time in a year.

Feedlot managers have been aggressive in their marketing plans in the past few weeks with the sharp disconnect between cash and summer futures prices. 

On Thursday CME cattle futures posted a rally with triple-digit gains but June Live Cattle contracts show a gap of near 20.00 less than cash; resisting any sign of strength with traders just waiting for the other shoe to drop. 

For the week, the front four Live Cattle contracts closed around 1.00 lower than last Friday’s close, while the front four Feeder Cattle contracts were 1.13 to 1.95 lower for the week. 

In addition, August to November Feeders all closed the week within 1.10 of each other.

Boxed-beef cut-out values have continued to show strength and climb higher even though the Choice-Select spread neared 20.00 on Monday of this week. 

Choice Boxed beef closed the week 6.56 higher than last Friday at 228.30, while the Select cutout was 5.17 higher at 209.49. 

The Choice-Select spread on Friday is 18.81, the largest since mid-December. 

Estimated Slaughter under Federal Inspection was reported at 647,000 for the week, the largest since late September 2017. 

These large harvest numbers have not hindered the packers from asking the retailers higher prices for product, with the middle meats leading the price charge ahead of Mother’s Day, Memorial Day and Father’s Day. 

On Monday the Restaurant Performance Index was released with positive news for the month of March with a monthly value at 101.8 up 0.7 from last month. 

The RPI increase was driven by improvements in sales and customer traffic.

Auction volume this week included 55 percent weighing over 600 lbs and 44 percent heifers.

WVDA 2018 Cooperative Agricultural Pest Surveys Underway

The Free Press WV

The West Virginia Department of Agriculture (WVDA) has started conducting early detection trappings and surveys throughout the state. The goal of the Cooperative Agricultural Pest Survey program (CAPS) is to detect any new, non-native pests and to monitor the impact of native agricultural pests. This includes: specific exotic plants, diseases and weeds identified as threats to forests and agriculture lands in West Virginia.

“Our staff is on the front line of protecting some of our most valuable natural resources. The sooner we detect invasive species, the better we can mitigate damage,“ said Commissioner of Agriculture Kent Leonhardt. “The hope is to preserve West Virginia’s natural beauty for generations to come.”

The program functions as a cooperative agreement with the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service on specific pest-control issues. The program aims to support export certification programs and contributes data to the National Agricultural Pest Information System (NAPIS) and Integrated Plant Health Information System (IPHIS) computer databases.

“We have always tried to take a proactive approach to detecting these species so we can incorporate control measures earlier,” said WVDA Plant Industries Director Tim Brown. “We cannot fully stop all these pests, but we can limit the impact they have on our forests and farming lands.“

The WVDA staff, through CAPS and Farm Bill agreements, will be setting over 500 insect monitoring traps in varying trees and crops to screen for any new introductions of harmful plant pests. This year we will be placing traps in cherry, oak and pine trees as well as corn, peppers, tomatoes, potatoes, soybean and small grains. Trappings will take place from May to early September.

For more information on these surveys please, contact Susan Parker at 304.788.1066, ‘sparker@wvda.us’.
