Our ebt card gets has $160 a month on it. That's $40 to feed both of us per week. We have two local Certified farmer's markets on Saturday and one every Thursday night. They cost more than what I pay at 99c store or Mexican market, but last much longer. I buy organic at a large nutrition store, only what is on sale. Then can get a few things that are a good deal at farmers market.

Here is a list of lowest and highest contaminated produce-
