{foto friday – local love}

7 Mar

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!!!!!! 😀


beautiful cherry tomatoes grown within 60 miles of my home…


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…


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


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.}


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.


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!


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.
