On the search for organic produce...

This weekend/week has already started off pretty busy, so while I had a second I wanted to post a quick update.
Sure, I can get some organic produce at some of our local grocery stores... but sometimes it's just lacking or not the quality I would hope for. To be completely honest about it, the quality of all of the produce at my main grocery store has declined so much in the past year that I'm surprised they don't know me by name from all the emails I have sent about it. So I finally did something I've been meaning to do for quite some time, I went to our local Saturday morning market.
Here is the link:
I ended up spending less money than I thought I would, and I was a bit disappointed in the lack of healthy meal/snack vendor options, but I did see a couple of local booths that offered organic veggies & fruits. I even scored some homemade salsa, pickles, and the last of this years blueberries from one stand.
Tomorrow I'm taking the girls (that means my dogs, including LilBit who I'm puppysitting for) to my moms for some fun play time at their nana's house (and a vet visit so Kalifornia can finally get her teeth cleaned) and plan on bringing a lot of the veggies over there... especially the pesticide free ears of corn I got.
Yes, I very much love corn.
Now that my fridge's veggie bin is all but overflowing I need to figure out what I want to do with all the yumminess. Can't let that goodness go to waste! This may be easier if I had a grill....
Next time I make it to the market I will take some pics to post. I love picking out the produce or asking the stand owner to pick out a "good one" for Spending the time outside is great, too. Some people did bring their dogs, even had a rescue group with some of their pups there, but I'm not sure if they are ready for these three crazy canine girls...

I've also discovered that I love hemp milk so much more than soy milk!!!! Wonder what will be next on my new stuff to try list... (Vegan Cuts seem to have some great subscription boxes...).
