Our weekend was packed. I can’t say I missed the computer. While we were driving in the Big City (Denver), we decided to do a little Produce Tourism. The traditional grocery store will always have a place in feeding families. But creative minds have multiplied the ways to get fruits and veggies onto your table.
Have you tried any of these?
- Community Supported Agriculture (CSA)
- Organic Home Delivery Companies
- Farmers’ Markets
- Food Co-ops
- Produce Stands
- Community Gardens
- Wholesale Produce Suppliers
On a whim during FearLESS Friday, we Googled and GPSed our way to Alpine Summit Sales, a wholesale produce supplier open to the public. Big P and Middle E had the time of their lives running through the warehouse and looking at exotic fruits and vegetables. Big P picked out a dangerous-looking (and painful) “cactus pear.”
Thanks to some Facebook friends, we identified it as a chayote squash with thorns.
It was refreshing to be in a store devoted to my favorite things: fruit, veg, grains, and spices. It feels good to find a grocery store that features tomatoes instead of candy bars at the checkout.
