Animal Crossing New Horizons turnips are possibly the most valuable resource in the game, and figuring out where to find turnips and how to sell them can earn you a ton of Bells relatively quickly. However, that is easier said than done. The game doesn’t give you access to the turnips early on; you have to work for them. And even then, you have to figure out how to work the system properly in order to get lots of Bells. That’s exactly what we’ll be showing you in our Turnips Where to Find & Sell in Animal Crossing New Horizons guide.
Where to Find & Sell Animal Crossing New Horizons Turnips?
To find and sell Turnips in Animal Crossing New Horizons, you first have to build the second shop on the island, called Nook’s Cranny. We cover that in detail in our How to Get 30 Iron Nuggets for New Shop guide. After the shop is complete, you’ll start finding the turnip vendor, Daisy Mae, on your island on Sunday mornings. You can read more about her and how she works in our When Can I Find Daisy Mae in Animal Crossing New Horizons guide.
Each week, Daisy will offer turnips at different prices, and anything that’s 100 Bells or under is absolutely worth the purchase. Try and fill up your inventory with turnips as much as you possibly can. Then, on Monday at 8 AM, head to Nook’s Cranny and speak with Timmy and Tommy. They’ll offer to buy turnips from you at a certain price. The price changes twice every day, at 8 AM and at noon, and you can sell your turnips every day except Sunday. This is what the game calls the Stalk Market.
The prices Timmy and Tommy offer for turnips varies drastically, apparently somewhere from 15 to 800 Bells. The golden area is around 250 Bells, because it will rarely go above that. So, remember to check in at Nook’s Corner twice a day, and sell, sell, sell those turnips when you gauge the price is right.
Side note: make sure to store turnips in your home. Move furniture if you have to. Leaving them outside might cause them to spoil (it does in previous games). Or, if you have another player on your island marked as a Best Friend can steal them. And no, you unfortunately can’t plant them for safekeeping either.
