Not only do I live in Southern California, but I am surrounded by one of the largest agricultural areas in the state, so I pass by numerous produce stands whenever I go to and from home, and their prices are normally 40% to 60% below the supermarket prices. I purchase red or green curly letuce or romaine lettuce, just ripped out of the gorund that morning, for 79 cents a head at a produce stand, while Von's (Safeway) or Ralph's (Kroeger) wants $1.49, and it's usually not even local produce, so it could conceiveably be up to a week old.
