At the end of the ten days they looked healthier and better nourished than any of the young men who ate the royal food. Daniel 1:15

This is the market in Hillsborough that I go to on Tuesdays after Auntie Phee's.

It's a small establishment but it is well stocked with lots of beautiful produce. Not all of it is organic or locally grown but there is a large selection of organic, modestly priced produce. Still more expensive then Walmart - but, please let me get away from Walmart.

This is an ad that explains about it....

Weaver Street Market is a natural foods cooperative focusing on providing you with a wide selection of organic, fair trade, and locally grown products. We work directly with local farmers to provide the freshest produce, milk and dairy products, and humanely raised meat at an affordable price. Our breads and pastries are baked fresh in our Hillsborough bakery every morning, and our hot bar, salad bar, and grab-and-go meals are served for you daily to take home or enjoy with us in our indoor café and outdoor patio. As a cooperative, all of our profits are returned to owners, donated to our community, or used to strengthen the cooperative for your benefit.

Open 7am-9pm seven days a week.

We currently have three recurring weekly events at the Hillsborough store.

Open Mic: Every Thursday from 6:30-8:30pm

Wine Tastings: Every Friday from 5:00-7:00pm

Food Sampling: Every Saturday from 3:00-5:30pm

Community Non-Profit Day: Every third Sunday from 11:00-1:00pm

Let's go - they have a wonderful food bar with hot and cold food.
The wine tasting might be fun too.
Today I got a beautiful bunch of greens for our smoothies. A huge pomegranate, an over priced wonderfully flavored brie. Since it's just Don and I this week I got some grass fed beef.
Loved it. It's flavor was good but I was more impressed knowing the purity
the product with out all the stuff added. I also found out a lot of their eggs are free range. Cool.
I am mostly staying on the outside isles. I am avoiding a lot of the prepackaged 'organic" stuff. The outside isles are full of great food, who even needs the packaged stuff. Although, I did get a non aluminum body deodorant which I am very happy with.
Am I to pathetic, so happy to be at a wholesome grocery store? I could SO live in Hillsborough.
