The Produce Station
Since I seem to be grocery shopping often these days, I decided to post pictures of some of the markets and supermarkets where I am spending my time. The Produce Station offers a wide selection of local fruit and vegetables, gardening plants, prepared meals, and quite a few other things.
Today the most exciting local produce was Michigan cherries.
...but if you want something more exotic, it's available!
Zingerman's bakehouse is marvelous -- the best thing the Zingerman's empire does, as far as I'm concerned. Driving to the bakehouse itself takes a little more time: The Produce Station has around half of the kinds of bread from the bakehouse.
Plenty of vegetables...
... and cheese...
...candy in packages and also bulk candy, nuts, fancy mixes, dried fruit, and even a small wine selection. I took photos of all this, but it's way to extensive to show.
pizza, quiche, macaroni and cheese, burritos, soups, a salad bar. So many temptations.
Outside, you can buy lots of herb plants, flowers, tomato plants, cages to grow them on, beautiful flower pots, even small trees. The most amazing thing is that the store is so small that you can hardly get past the other carts.
Thanks to Lydia at The Perfect Pantry for giving me the idea to write about my markets!
