I recently visited a farmer's market in northern San Diego and was intrigued by a stand selling locally raised beef, turkey, and rabbit. I wanted to buy something but felt uncomfortable not buying meat directly from a store because of safety... (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)

I work for a co-op, so I buy most of my stuff there with my staff discount. Otherwise, Fred Meyer and sometimes Costco.

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)

Everyone I know has been recommending that I go to the St. Pete downtown farmers market on Saturday mornings because of my constant babbling about grass-fed this, pastured that. Any other Bay Area Paleos checked out the market in St. Pete? Any... (more)

The meat quy is real expensive. $7 /lb for groung beef. Knows nothing about offal. I think he sells the "stuff" for his brother.I find them very "weak" (Paleo-wise). The dairy/egg woman is more "sincere" (paleo-wise). The dairy is pricey, but... (more)

A lot of people like to say, "It's just too expensive to eat so much fresh food!" After browsing through the greens section of the grocery stores I can see why! A bag of turnip greens costs $3, a pack of summer squash and zucchini for $3, lettuce,... (more)

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)

No because, oddly enough, although we are less than an hour from the largest Amish settlement in the country (Wayne and Holmes counties in Ohio) they don't come this far east/north to our farmers' markets. The single exception to that is the... (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)

I find that Sprouts has a better meat department, while Henry's has more groceries. Neither one can seem to carry a decent amount of OP products. In my area, I often have to get cream at one and butter at the other. If they merge, perhaps it... (more)
