Personally, I'd rather pay the farmer. I go to a local dairy for raw milk and pastured eggs. They also sell their own beef and pork, humanely raised on organic feeds, etc.
Veggies and fruits, on the other hand, have been difficult to find around here other than the supermarket, and not much selection there. I was spoiled living in Oregon for 15 years, with weekly (sometimes thrice-weekly) farmers markets overflowing with beautiful food of all kinds. The couple of farmers markets I've tried here in Georgia have disappointed -- standard squash and stuff, not much of it, and it never looks fresh. I pretty much only eat what I can grow, with necessary exceptions.
This winter put an end to my winter greens garden for awhile. The lettuce is still alive, but not growing. Other things may also be alive but I haven't checked under the Reemay and straw. I'm hoping they'll perk back up once (and if!) this cold, snowy winter leaves us.
