Here are the girls modeling their new gowns. Bailey is also wearing some of her new too-big-right-now flip flops!
My other bargains of late are fruits and veggies! Garden City has a new farmer's market. This is the first summer they've had one here, although several surrounding towns have had them for a while. The Garden City one is pretty small, but I'm hoping it will grow if the residents here support it. The nice thing about it is everything is locally grown here in Michigan, and some of it is even organic! One of the ladies from church called me Wednesday morning and invited me to go with her. I didn't get much there (just some cucumbers, blueberries, and homemade bread), but it was still fun and the prices were good. Many of the vendors were selling beautiful plants and flowers, but we all know how well I do with those ;) so I passed on them. After we left the farmer's market, though, she took me to an awesome fruit and vegetable market in the next town over. I was totally amazed at the selection and the prices. Everything was so fresh and beautiful. Of course, not everything they sell is locally grown, but still...it was unbelievable to me. We've never lived anywhere (except maybe Memphis) that had such an awesome fruit and vegetable store. The prices were definitely cheaper than the Kroger stores here and the produce was much fresher than what Wal-Mart and Meijer (a Wal-Mart type store) seem to have.
Anyway, here is some of what I got:
- 16 oz bag baby carrots (washed & ready to eat) for $0.99
- green bell peppers for $0.50 each
- yellow onions for $0.33/lb.
- whole ears of corn were 4/$0.99 (And we even shucked them there in the store so they could deal with all the mess!)
- seedless grapes for $0.99/lb.
- plums for $0.69/lb.
- peaches for $0.79/lb.
- bartlett pears for $0.79/lb.
- large pineapple for $2.39
They had lots of vegetables and fruits that I had either never heard of or never bought (stuff used in Asian cooking). It was a really fun experience. They even sell fresh cut flowers (spring mix) for $2.99 a bunch. Now Dustin has no excuse!
Anyway, that's all for now about my bargains. Happy shopping everyone!
