With Safeway (a.k.a. Dominick's, for the Chicago contingency) a 15 minute walk from our apartment, I find myself going there at least every other day. In the beginning, I was excited when I saw tomatoes or strawberries from California - my now "home state" - they had to be fresh. I find myself expecting this now, and when I see produce from Mexico it drives me crazy! This last weekend, Niko and I decided to check out the Mountain View (home of Google) farmer's market - it was wonderful! Fresh (and locally!) grown tomatoes, asparagus, artichokes, zucchini, leeks, mushrooms, flowers, everything you could imagine! And, for the most part, everything is comparably priced to what's found at Safeway. I can't wait to check out the San Francisco markets!
