Don’t go to Wegmans and buy this basket. It will break the bank.
I used the interesting online tool to create a shopping list to compare. The tomatoes alone, for organic, cost more than what I pay for my CSA. $3 a pound. All together I have 11 pounds of tomatoes there. My CSA share costs $29.75 a week. The tomatoes, the romas at least, went here.
1 Bunch Blue Hyssop ( I swapped for a second bag of romas)
6 Ears Bi-Color Sweet Corn, $3
1 Bag Red Roma/Paste Tomatoes (4 1/2 pounds, I got two bags, 9 X $3 = $27)
1 Italian Eggplant $2.50
1 Bag Romano Beans(closest I could Find is wax beans for $3)
2 Leeks $4 each, yes, Wegmans charges $4 each for organic leeks) $8
3 Green Bell Peppers $2.29 each X 3 = $7 approximately
1 Bag Purple Viking Potatoes, 3 pounds, $2.50 X 3 = $7.50
1 Bag Sweet Onions $3.75
1 Bag Purple Cayenne Peppers, closest I could find is hot peppers for $3.75
1 Bag Heirloom Tomatoes, 2 pounds X $3 = $6
Total to buy organic at Wegmans is $71.50. More than twice what I pay! And, these aren’t weird veggies. These are organically grown high quality veggies that a family could use all week.
Don’t get me wrong. I love Wegmans. But, CSA’s rock!
