I think part of it is dependent on having an immigrant population. I live in a gentrified "rural" college town, and the farmer's market (for upper middle class yuppies) is just as expensive if not more than Whole Foods. There are farm stands on... (more)

California law requires that farmers process meat through licensed processing plants for commercial sale. Most farmers welcome questions, visits to see how animals are treated, and will tell you where the processing took place (though it may not... (more)

Yes to Sunflower Market, I live near the one in Roseville and shop on the double ad Wednesdays. The produce is great and they have Ahi tuna for only 10.99 a lb, where at whole foods its 20.99 per lb. A couple of weeks ago they had grass fed beef... (more)

It seems that the CEO of Sprouts, Shon Boney, finally cut a deal with Henry's. Now all Henry's locations are going to become Sprouts. I hope they still carry my favorite items that I get at each store separately. Fat Chance. Anybody disappointed... (more)

Important: is it BPA free? That is the part I am most willing to pay for. I buy a gorgeous smoked local canned tuna as a treat, and there is a huge taste in texture/flavour even with their un-smoked. The flesh tastes "meat-ier" to me, and it just... (more)
