netstryker For some items you must purchase the recipe and for some others you must find in specific places on the map.

Seitzz I found that it was easiest to just buy all the recipes from the fence whenever and then just hunt a few different animals, pick up plants, etc. You get a random array of stuff, and then just craft away, one by one.
