    After we found that buying foods and other materials were economical at the large supermarkets.

    why it should be "was economical" while the sentence is plural?
    give me an evidence of English grammar.

    The subject of the clause is "buying [foods and other materials]". The gerund "buying" is singular.
    "Buying was more economical at the large supermarkets."
    "The buying of foods and other materials ..."

    By the way, sentences aren't singular or plural. Subjects of clauses and their corresponding verbs are.
