I am never buying produce from the grocery store again

well at least not as long as the fruit and veggie stand guys are still in the parking lot of the butcher shop that is.

I went grocery shopping earlier and was disgusted at the meat selection so I decided to head over to the local butcher shop afterwards. In the parking lot there was a fruit and veggie stand set up so after I got my meat I wandered on over.

For a whopping $7.00 I was able to purchase:
1 canteloupe
1 honeydew melon
2 peaches
2 pears
2 lemons
2 green peppers
6 bananas
6 apples
12 ears of corn

Finally an affordable way to get these items. I asked how long they'd be there and was told until early November. (Yeah), nothing like farm fresh food.

Wow, that's quite a bargain. We only have two supermarkets in our whole city and they are both very expensive.
