How do you buy turnips in Animal Crossing: New Horizons?

The key to getting on your hands on turnips is going to find Daisy-Mae, one of our new favourite villagers, who’s a relatively recent addition to the Animal Crossing scene. You can find her at Sow Joan’s Stalk Market where she will set up shop every Sunday morning at 5am, and hang around until noon.

You can buy the turnips from Daisy-Mae in bunches of 10. It’s also extremely important you sell them off before she arrives back the following Sunday, as otherwise they will rot and simply become a wasted investment.

How do you store turnips in Animal Crossing: New Horizons?

The strange thing about turnip storage in Animal Crossing: New Horizons is that the game makes it extremely difficult. You can’t store them in the containers in your home, or plant them outside, which is strange considering turnips are vegetables. But what you can do, if you don’t want to lug them around all week, is toss them on the floor in your house.

They’ll stay safe, and they’ll give your home a lovely rustic farmyard feel. Either that, or you just sell them as soon as you can.

Selling turnips can be tricky, as what price you get will always be a gamble. As with selling stocks, your goal is to make more money selling them than you spent on purchasing them. There’s no hard and fast rule to getting the best turnip prices, but one way is shopping around, visiting friend’s islands and anywhere else you might have a chance at making some Bells.

Another way is to predict what price you are going to get. There are even unofficial online tools that offer turnip price predictions, but your best bet is to record the prices on the island yourself to see how they fluctuate, so you can determine the pattern. Social media is also pretty useful, since a lot of people just post asking who has the best turnip prices, and then flock to that friend’s island in a turnip-selling frenzy.

It’s a fine art, but if you follow this process, you’ll get the hang of selling turnips and making Bells in no time at all.
