I am so eager for our local farmer's market to really get going this year!! There was a lady there last year who sold ENORMOUS zucchini and yellow squash for a quarter a piece! Also for 25 cents, you could buy cucumbers, green bell peppers, eggplant, and all of those weird looking squash that I have to learn to do something with. Most of those veggies are 10 for $10 at the grocery store ($1 each), so I think the farmer's market is a huge bargain, plus it's fresh and locally grown! Last summer we ate roasted or grilled veggies with every meal and this summer is shaping up to be the same way.
