    It can vary by season. Throughout the year, potatoes tend to be quite inexpensive, though a few nitpickers argue they are a starch and not a vegetable, and they say the same thing about corn. Right now, corn on the cob is about the cheapest vegetable per serving. Things like peppers, onions and tomatoes generally don't make for side dishes but rather are components in main dishes and sides. Right now, those are cheap, but when they're out of season and have to be brought in from elsewhere, they can get expensive. Right now, zucchini and summer squash might be the cheapest of all. Those absolutely humongously overgrown zucchini that are loaded with seeds and are pretty much best battered and fried or used for zucchini bread can be had 3 for a buck at the farm market. They must weight five pounds apiece.

    Depends where you live and how you define vegetables.

    Potatoes are probably cheapest many places (but not Australia) but while they are definitely a vegetable from a horticultural perspective, from a dietary perspective they're a carb source.

    Onions, carrots and cabbage are both cheap most places. Winter squash, known here as pumpkin, is very cheap in Australia. Beetroot is usually cheap here too. Frozen peas are cheap, and that's probably true wherever you are.

    Vegetables also vary in price seasonally. So the cheapest veg is usually whatever is in season wherever you live.

    If youre looking for an easy one to replant and grow more, again its the potato

    Dandelions. You can pull dandelion greens out of the ground in a vacant lot and cook them and eat them...free.
