30 Bananas a Day!

hi, 

i am a new member and was wondering how many people here were from california?? wondering if anyone knows good and reliable wholesale source for produce? the amount of fruit you need to eat is daunting. i am on a very tight budget and am worried i wont be able to afford it :(

bay area is the best for fruit and stuff. many places around, especially if youre willing to travel a bit.
 

I'm from Sacramento. :)

LOTS of fruit stands around here. 
Don't know if you are in norcal or socal? 

If you are in norcal I can suggest a few things

i live in the south bay in san jose. i think i read that there is a farmer's mrkt in santa cruz that is good. might check that out. there is a downtown market here in town, but its more of an attraction. but you can still find good deals if you look. i am on a super tight budget ( my career is notorious for small paychecks!!) so im always looking for something better/ less expensive

Pretty sure there are organic farms around there! Even closer than santa cruz.

Howdy! I live in Santa Cruz, and the farmer's markets here are bomb, and there are several, year round! But I recommend a wholesaler in your area. Google it.

I live in Santa Cruz as well, I love the farmers market at Cabrillo College on Saturday mornings.  Also the flea market is a great place to get good prices on mango, oranges, bananas, pineapples, etc.  I even found jackfruit there once.  The Mexican fruit and veggie vendors bring in pretty good stuff and offer the lowest prices around, especially if you buy a lot, they'll give you a deal.

Every week I also order boxes of fruit from the Capitola Village Produce store.  I made friends with the owner (easy to do once he notices you buying a lot of fruit at his store) and he gives me a great deal when buying fruit by the case.

Good berries are easy to get around here because so much of it grows in nearby Watsonville.  I visited Boston a couple of months ago and found strawberries on sale in Boston that came from Watsonville, he he!

Santa Cruz is too far. There is one in Fremont at Newpark mall parking lot every Sunday. I always get my fruits and some veges from there. If you go there around 12:30 to 1:00 the price always drops from 25-50 cents per pound. I got 50 pounds of apple for only 10 bucks sometimes just 8 bucks. You can always bargain the price if you buy a lot. Those apples might not look pretty from the outside but who cares. I sorted them out into three categories: 1. Juice-right-away 2. cut&frozen-in-bag 3. great-shape-in-fridge.

wow! this is amazing. thank you so much. i cant wait to explore :)

np! Saw it a little while ago and it totally made me all giddy! hehe

Check out Alba, Driscolls, and riders and sons! TONS of berries, and some veggies too. You guys are pretty close to some of the biggest berry dealers in nor cal! haha
