Merchants will only sell me food!!!!
Ok. So I reloaded and began a new game. But it still gets to a certain point and even the blacksmith in Whiterun will only sell me food! WTF???

Lol I could pull a few bad jokes on this but I'll take a pass...

Load-order or conflicting mods are your problem

You and the OP have the same profile picture. Coincedence? I THINK NOT actually it probably is

Probably not a load ordre issue, but either a bad mod or something is wrong in your Skyrim installation.

Those wares are based to leveled lists and sure as hell Adrianne does not have food included in her list. It means that either a mod or a bug has replaced her list.

Look trough your mods for merchant related files and verify the integrity of your game cache.

I have the same issue. It seems to have started about 5 hours into the game. Suddenly I had only the options to sell or buy food and ingredients... To say the least.... I'M PRETTY PERTURBED!!!

To be certain that this is not a load order issue, load and run LOOT:

To be sure that this is not about game files, do clean file verification for Skyrim:
- Exit Steam.
- Go to your Steam folder and remove folder named appcache
- Restart your computer
- Restart Steam
- Right click the game in Steam client Library view.
- Select Properties -> Local Files -> Verify Integrity of Game Cache.

If problem remains, then you guys are certain to have some weird mod that causes it. I have no idea what that could be.

thanks for the suggestion. I'll give that a shot and see what shakes up!

You know, you could have just bumped your other thread: need to keep making new threads if no one is replying. That said, are you running any mods? Particularly ones that effect the economy or merchants?

Success!!!!! It looks like "FrostFang: Land in Highrock" mod was causing the issue. If I enable it, the issue is there, and if I disable it it's gone. Works with the same saves, so I know it's the plugin changing the behaviour and not a new game. I ran loot and re-organized my mods and still had the issue, so I went through and activated half at a time until the problem came up again, and then meticulously went through and activated and deactivated groups of them until I was able to isolate the mod in particular. Hope this helps. This was a hell of a bug!!!!

What ever combination I am trying, I can not find that mod. It seems that author deleted it.

I am first one to admit, that I know very little about history and functions of Wokrshop mods, because I do not use them.

I literally added that mod 2 days ago, and then when I went to look for it just now it was gone. I have a feeling that may be due to the fact that it was broken in some way and the author realized the severity of it and took it down. Seemed weird it was a global merchant bug for a new land area. weird stuff indeed.
