how happy am i to have recently been made aware of an amazing little local/organic store within biking distance of where i live!!?!??!!!?!?!?!

SO!!!!!! 😀

cherrytomatoes-1

beautiful cherry tomatoes grown within 60 miles of my home…

cherrytomatoes-2

exploding with flavour!!  i’m guessing they are hydroponically grown… which in my opinion, seems to be the most tasty way to grow tomatoes – just from personal experience, having eaten a bajillion of them over the last few years. 😉  hello, remember my san marzano obsession!?  cuz i do…

localloveeggs-3

local, organically raised and fed chicken eggs from 3 hours away…

localloveeggs-4

in a perfectly-coloured ‘food & foto magenta’ crate… 😉 {i feel like i’m cheating on miss E, but i’m SO grateful for farm-fresh diverse-looking eggs again!!!! she gets it.}

localorganictomato-1

STUNNING red cluster tomatoes from a farm that hosts a market in the spring through fall – and i can just hop on the bus and go right to it.

localorganictomato-3

they were the first thing i spotted when i walked in the door – and i literally exclaimed, “my god – those tomatoes are beautiful!!!”  and that’s when the lovely girl working there and i hit it off instantly because she is a foodie, also!

localorganictomato-5

everything in the store is locally made/grown and is ORGANIC!!!!!!!   😀 😀

I LOVE THAT!!!!!!! and i am so happy to support them!  thank you miss M for telling me about it!!!

    The Annex is a great new addition to town. I bought four of those tomatoes too! Bursting with color.
