Farmers' Market bargains (revisited)

In my previous post on the Paterson Farmers' Market, "Follow the tracks to great food buys," I forgot to list another Stonyfield Farm yogurt item on sale at Eastern Groceries -- an 8-pack of organic YoKids Squeezers for $1.

And I was mistaken when I said the expiration date of the Earthbound Farm organic heirloom lettuce leaves was in four days (Feb. 10). That was the case for the organic spring mix I saw there, but when I went to use the lettuce last night, I saw the expiration date was Jan. 30.

Still, they made a beautiful salad last night and I used them again in breakfast sandwiches this morning. Unlike the more delicate spring mix beyond the expiration date, the lettuce showed no signs of deterioration and I plan to buy more in the future ($1 for 7 ounces).
