Produce Auction Why Go To One?

Updated on December 4, 2009

Auctions I am sure that we have all seen an auction at some point or visited EBay, but one type of auction that typically flies under the radar of many people are produce auctions. Now you might think why would I want to go to a produce auction if all that I am going to be finding is produce that I can purchase at the store and not have to worry about the amount that I am buying because I am going to get the right amount for what I need.  However, what you might not realize is that by attending a produce auction you are typically going to get very fresh produce and at times the produce will be picked the day prior if not that day. Here are the benefits that you can reap though by attending produce auctions.

The first benefit that you can reap by attending a produce auction is that you are going to be able to get quite a bit of fresh produce at a very good price. Now typically since you will be purchasing in wholesale lots the produce actual cost might be quite a bit more than what you would pay at the grocery store, but if you are wanting to make sure how much you will be saving you will want to take and multiply your grocery store cost by the total weight or quantity of the item that you purchased. If you bid smartly you should notice that the savings will greatly outweigh the amount that you would pay for the same amount in the store. So the savings can be used later on in the year for something else.

The second benefit is you will be able to store most of this produce in your cellar or by using the canning process. Some people might not realize that this is very easy to do, but it can be time consuming at times on people. However, if you consider that in the middle of winter the price of your produce is normally a little bit higher than it would be if you were purchasing the produce in the harvest season when it is in season you can see why you would enjoy the savings even more and the labor of storing your items can be a family affair that everyone can have fun doing.

The third benefit for utilizing a produce auction is if you and some of your neighbors get involved you can split the cost between each of you. Now this will save you money and help you to draw closer to your neighbors in ways that can help build community. Which is always a nice thing to do because then you can get to know your neighbors better and be able to enjoy each others company at various times throughout the year.

For some people a produce auction would be a great choice for you to use to find your fresh produce. The benefits are many and you can enjoy quite a few of them when you go to a produce auction. The ones that I mentioned are just a few of the ones that you can find and enjoy yourself. However, I am sure that you will find even more benefits and be able to enjoy them even more than what you thought possible so remember to find a local produce auction and have fun bidding on some fresh produce!
