Gold Plated Food

Over $100 for a quick trip to get groceries, and I didn't even get everything I needed.  Food doesn't seem like it should be that expensive.  The big farms were supposed to drive prices down, but have, instead, literally cornered the market.  

There's no way a small farmer could compete with how cheaply the big guys can run a farm, though it's getting close to being feasible again for a small farmer to survive, with how much food costs.  It'd probably still be more expensive to buy, but would be much fresher and you'd know who grew it and how.  I might need to start visiting the farmer's market.
