    Since I don't have a garden, I buy tomatoes, corn on the cob. okra, yellow squash, zucchini, peaches, onions, lettuce, everything they have, pretty much. Except beets. It is much easier to open an occasional can for them.

    I'm going to one this Saturday and will hopefully get to meet a QB member while I am there. I can't remember her member name but we chat on FB quite a lot. Maybe I will find some good veggies while I am there.

    We have our farmers' markets, and then we have our Hmong farmers who do beautiful strawberries and other garden stuff.
    I never buy strawberries in grocery stores, the Hmongs have marvelous quality control on theirs and we never find a whitish one on the bottom of the box like in grocery stores. Never. I think they would be highly embarrassed should such a thing happen.

    corn (because it takes up too much space to fit it in my small garden, plus it attracts raccoons)... and my favorite is local peaches, perfectly ripe and wondrously fragrant.

    Here in California we are absolutely spoiled with the wonderful fruit we have available. I go to the Farmer's market almost every Sat. morning. I love talking to the farmers that actually grow the crops. The growers offer free samples. Our farmers market goes well beyond fruits and vegetables. We have breads, fish, baked goods, and lots of home made goodies.

    I buy anything except brussel sprouts...yuck!! And, the market I go to (they have it twice a week, year round in a church parking lot here), there is a lady that makes the most wonderful cheeses. She has a special holiday cheddar that is so sharp it crackles on your tongue.

    We have a farmer's market within walking distance and when it isn't too hot I do walk over there.

    Armenian cucumbers, nectorines, and white peaches are my favorites. But there is such a good variety of veggies, I will get a lot of different ones for the next week's meals. It sure beats anything in the supermarket.

    We have a Saturday market that sells all kinds of things in addition to food. The local bread bakery (Great Harvest) has a booth with free samples. There are always beautiful bouquets of flowers for $5 and $10. Apples, zucchini, peaches, beets, greens, radishes, tomatoes, pluots, jars of fresh honey, homemade organic doggy bisquits, one of a kind birdhouses, bead jewelry. I love going there.
