our trip to the market

One of JJ and my favorite things to do together is grocery shop.  When we lived in Minnesota, we'd visit this "high-end" grocery store called "Byerly's."  Sometimes if we couldn't think of anything else to do, we'd walk around Byerly's carpeted store listening to the smooth tunes coming out of the store speakers.  When we'd leave, we would feel refreshed and relaxed.  It was like a free spa!

Now that we live in Florida, we head over to our local produce only market.  As seen from the pictures, it's far from "high-end," but it's so much fun.  I love going into the market and seeing the store owner chat with happy customers and watching kids run in with their parents excited to eat the fresh organic fruits and veggies.  The last time we went, we were leaving the store and saw a dad and his sweet son sharing a bag of peanuts they just bought as they sat under the shade of the store front.  I told JJ that someone should take their picture and have it be an advertisement for the store. :) 

I never realized how awesome it is to support these local businesses and in return receive such excellent customer service, awesome prices, and feel so confident about feeding their products to my family. :)
