Animal Crossing: City Folk Tips

The Turnip Market
Another way to make fast Bells in the early stages of the game is through the turnip trade. A special character named Joan visits your town every Sunday from 6:00 am to Noon; you'll find her just wandering about. Speak with Joan to buy some turnips from her. You may then sell these to Tom Nook, who usually offers much more for them than what you paid. Tom's buying prices change from day to day, though, so make sure you get a good deal before you sell - but don't wait too long or your turnips will rot.
