Animal Crossing players have always had something to look forward to once past Sunday, and the same goes for New Horizons. On Sundays you can get a nice pile of turnips and try the turnip market.

Anyone can play the turnip market, but you have a distinct advantage if you have friends you can visit. Read on to find out how to get in on the action.

How to buy turnips in Animal Crossing: New Horizons

Every Sunday morning, a not-so-surprising visitor will come to your island: adorable boar Daisy Mae, who has taken over Joan's turnip-selling business.

You can only buy turnips at Daisy Mae from 5 a.m. to 12 p.m. Sunday, so be prepared.

You will be able to buy as many turnips as you can afford from Daisy Mae, and those turnips will be sold until she comes down. This means you only have one week to sell your turnips!

Daisy Mae sells turnips at different prices each week, you just have to accept the initial cost and hope to find a higher selling price throughout the week.

If you still have your turnips on Sunday after buying them, they will go bad and be unsaleable.

Be sure to remember how much you bought your turnips for. I personally write the price.

Tommy and Timmy are more than happy to buy your turnips at various prices, from double to triple. This is why you need to remember the original price or your turnips.

Take the time each day to check how many turnips they're willing to buy from Nook, but don't be discouraged if the price one day is particularly low. It could easily skyrocket later in the week.

It should be noted that you can sell turnips on your friends' islands just as you can. If you're determined to make big bells with your investment, be sure to check prices on their islands throughout the week.

The key to making money selling turnips is to hedge your bets on whether you think you'll get a better price later in the week than today, and try to make a big profit on your initial investment.

If you haven't found a reasonable price by Saturday, you'll need to take what you can sell on your island or your friends' island. Otherwise, your initial investment has been lost.

How to store your turnips in Animal Crossing: New Horizons

Storing your turnips is easier than finding a good price for them, thankfully.

My favorite method is to just lay them on the floor of my house. You can't store them, but they can just sit there all week waiting for a good sale price.

You can drop them just about anywhere on your island safely, and they won't go bad. You can lay them in a corner, you can leave them strewn all over the square – heck, you can bury them in a hole until you're ready to sell them.

The only way not to store your turnips is in your stomach. Don't eat your turnips. There's no reason to do that and you're not going to get them back. Just sell them like a normal person.


That's it for our guide to buying, selling, and storing turnips in Animal Crossing: New Horizons. Have you ever been successful in the turnip market? I'm still waiting for my time to shine.
