I do. We have a very, very cheap farmer's market near us, and we drive there (about 25 min each way) weekly to get all of our produce. We're hooked!

Summers are the best. If we go at the end of the day, we get giant grocery bags full of tomatoes, peaches, etc for 3-4 dollars. I can jam, peaches, and tomato sauce all summer long.

I work downtown and we have one right down the block. However most of them go to another one the next town over on Saturday so no deals at the end because they know they will sell it the next day.

That's why I go on Sunday instead of Saturday...driving to the next town over saves me a ton of money.

I've been going at least once a week (usually twice!) for all the good stuff: broccoli, green beans, carrots, fennel, zucchini, corn, pickled beets, onions, greens, cherries, berries and I usually pick up a veggie-filled quesadilla at one of the food stands to split. Yum! I will miss the summer produce so much!
