Mary needs to create an alibi for herself. Since she and Patrick usually go out to dinner on Thursdays, she goes to the market for vegetables and tells the grocer that Patrick wanted to stay in and she was caught unprepared. This sets up her alibi that she was at the grocery store when the murder occurred.
