love this town

I love this town! We went to the Hmong Farmers Market this morning and got an insane amount to veg for $10. Everybody says its organic--"no spray"--but nobody is certified as such because of the cost. Then we went to our local Middle Eastern (my favorite) grocery and loaded up on breads and spreads. A lovely bottle of rose water as well. After dinner I stole out for a quick ride around our neighborhood lake.

  1. Meg,

    I think it is fairly common that farmers don't get certified organic due to the cost. We have heard the same story from farmers here. I love our farmers' market and international grocery stores for "deals" on produce.

    Sounds like a fun bike ride. I would love to be able to ride my bike without throwing it in my SUV and driving it to the trails. You are fortunate to be able to ride safely close to home.

    have a great evening,
