I love that every time I go to Costco, I see more and more whole foods being sold.
In a perfect world all our food would be grown locally (or better yet… in our back yard), but that seems almost impossible in a climate like ours. We have 2 months here till our summer farmers market opens… but in the mean time I’m happy with great deals from the big box stores!
If you don’t have a Costco membership, they will let you browse the store to see if if looks like a good $50 yearly investment. I’ve also heard that they have no problem letting you tag along with a friend and use their membership (as long as they are in store with you).
