Look for a wholesale produce terminal in your area, cut the middle man out ;)
look for fair trade bananas, they are the best, grown more sustainable than organic and taste better too. go to the L.A. wholesale markets to get the best price or ask those living in L.A.. The Fruit of Los Angeles!
Thanks for the tip, but unfortunately LA is 1.5 hours away from where live (and that's not adding time for traffic, which there alwayyys is).
