How to Make Money in Stardew Valley
Crops are a real hot commodity in Stardew Valley. You’re able to grow as many as you can plant and sell them for even more profit. They are absolutely your main source of income– provided the months are good for them, that is. Always keep in mind that if a crop is meant for only a specific season, it will rot and be unusable the first day of the next season. Make the most of your crops by planting them early right on day one of a new season, allowing them ample time to grow. If they’re a one-time thing, you just have to sell them and hopefully buy more to replace the plots. If they continue to give crops after the first picking, perfect. You’ve got yourself a renewable resource. As soon as you can afford the saplings that Pierre sells, buy them. Those trees will always bear you fruit each day in their appropriate seasons.
Keep in mind you do get an extra boost for crops that are silver and gold star levels, so it might be smart to invest in some quality fertilizer. This is mixed into the soil before planting seeds and will last for awhile in that plot of land. But, it can also be pricey at 150 coins for one of the quality fertilizers. Hey, you have to spend money to make money.
