A farm near where I worked in Devon had a barn set up to sell their produce. Assorted veg & fruit laid out on tables with prices, nobody on duty just a charity box at the door. Amazing value - you could fill a basket for just a couple of quid.
The only downside was you needed a car as it was out of town.

Things like this are a great idea, good local food without any overheads.
