I can find stuff in the grocery store cheaper than I can grow it, but it is normally cr@p grown who-knows-where. Farmer's market here doesn't sell anything cheaper, so I think your friend is either pulling your leg or is lazy and wants you to be lazy too.
Even if it weren't cheaper, I'd still grow my own because it is fresher, better tasting than I can get elsewhere and I know what I use to grow it...don't have to worry about whether the stuff is healthy to eat or not. I also have a really good time playing in the dirt, and it is one more excuse to get some seat-time on my tractor...amazing how many times you need to cultivate a garden before it is "just right"!
anyway, plant a garden cuz it is good for ya and that's what country folks do.
