I don't seeany corn in your cornucopia.

because of a switch up, senior moment, confusion of intent, whatever,  i missed buying the corn ... had to get it yesterday at the Great Wall Shopping Mall ... where i also got some Chinease Eggplant which tasted so good in the hot curry chicken dish i had at Racha
..... you can see it bottom left (almost looks like a pickel) but is very soft and lucious.

Actually I pay a lot less for vegetables & there is a larger variety at our FM. We have one down the hill in Chico that is open year round, but I don't like to spend the gas  for the round trip.

Hmmm.... almost makes me want to move North. I eagerly anticipate the opening of our local farmer's market here in Paradise (a pun on the fact this used to be a gambling town). 

Yes i'm looking forward to mine .... in Renton opens in June ... don't know about Kent. Last month we went to an early one in Issaqua, but don't know if it is a regular one.  You do end up paying more for the produce, but the feeling might be worth it.  McPhearson's is just a relatively large produce market that has been in Seattle for years and years.

.... hmmm .... ... that's surprising.  I ended up doing some comparisons last year and the fm was much higher.  Maybe this year i need to take a closer look.  Obviously prices may vary a lot ... and making a grand generalization is difficult.
