I regularly shop at my local Farmer's Market. I love the produce, its fresher and better tasting than at the supermarket, and I love the ability to get exactly what I want from the local butchers as well - no watery chicken breasts or huge packs of ground beef when all I want or need is half a pound! The cheesemongers let me taste before I buy, and I can easily get a wide variety. There is a lady who sells amazing canned goods and homemade saurkraut that is out of this world, and there are fresh flowers in abundance too. Plus, local buskers playing music, and the Market itself puts on cooking demonstrations and other events on a regular basis. What could be better?
I find I only need my local grocery for dried goods, and even that I'm starting to buy more of at the bulk store - they have a much better variety of whole wheat options!
