That depends on which farmers markets and supermarkets you’re comparing and what area you live in. Here’s an article that describes some comparisons made on the west coast.
When I lived in the midwest (Minnesota and Wisconsin) I found farmer’s markets to be much cheaper than grocery stores. Now that I live in California, it depends quite a bit on the type of produce you are buying. I think in California they have begun labeling their items “organic” which many of them are, but they then increase the price greatly with this label. Additionally, the produce I get from places like Henrys and Trader Joe’s are actually as local, and as fresh as many of the farmer’s market items, so in general, I shop at local stores rather than farmers markets.
It depends on where you are located and which market you are referring to particularly. Sometimes I find products at so-called discount stores that are more expensive than the regular grocery store. There are pros and cons that come with shopping at a market versus a supermarket and vice versa.
