Whole Foods may be a tremendous addition to the community not solely as a result of they provide a large kind of organic product (which is in person my favorite part) and special diet foods (egg free things for my kinsman un agency has food allergies, for example,) however conjointly due to their commitment to support native farmers and merchants.

Some folks jokingly decision it “Whole Paycheck” as a result of, yes, some product is pricier than at the traditional market, however I really believe you get what you procure, and therefore the costs square measure affordable if you look seasonally, and smart. For example, yesterday there was wild salmon on sale for $4.99/lb. Organic strawberry and blueberry cartons were 2/$4, and organic cherries were simply $4.99/lb. That’s insane!

I’m waiting to explore the shop to its fullest when the crowds have died down a touch, however yesterday I managed to require a hot lap and grab an enormous bag of these said cherries to create a CRAZY fast and healthy meal of Grilled Chicken Cherry condiment (with a thin Cherry Berry Smash on the side!)
