There’s a small country market approximately 20 minutes from my house, and it’s the closest place I can buy yogurt and half & half in returnable glass. It also happens to have an impressive produce selection. I stocked up on fruit & veg, and also purchased a beautiful jar.
They also have many choices of dried chiles, beans, lentils, grains, and flours. Unfortunately, those are not available in bulk, but I try to talk to them about the possibility of it in the future without coming across as negative.
This was the first time in a year and a half of no waste grocery shopping that someone has said anything to me. A woman in the parking lot asked if I was doing no waste and I was so shocked and excited I didn’t hold the conversation very well. Maybe next time!
I live in Idaho, and not even in the capitol, so it is surprising in a smaller conservative town when one meets like-minded individuals.
Isn’t the jar stunning? It will fit in perfectly with all my other vintage jars. (Almost a candidate for the show Hoarders.)
Peace and love,
