It’s Small Business Saturday, today!

It’s Small Business Saturday, today!  According to wikipedia, Small Business Saturday was first observed on November 27, 2010.   I fully support the movement to raise awareness that we DO vote with our dollars every time we make a purchase.  If you want your local retailers to STAY IN BUSINESS – it is up to you and me to shop there.  So, I believe in shopping local whenever possible.

Organic Pomegranate

Organic Pomegranate

Did I venture up to the very busy shopping mall today?  No.  I visited my very favorite locally owned and operated Produce Depot in St. John, IN.   I bought ALL ORGANIC  fruits and veggies:  strawberries, pomegranats, date rolls, green peppers, arugula salad, grape tomatoes, broccoli, spaghetti squash, red onion and garlic.  No other retailer around here takes the time to stock as many fresh organic items, and I (for one) greatly appreciate them.  I am ready to cook for the week!

DaBecca

Oh!   While not organic, I also purchased  DaBecca Roast Beef – a local company (based in Chicago) that produces incredibly delicious lunchmeat without nitrites, hormones or antibiotics.  Check out the nutrition label on this product!  This lunchmeat tastes fabulous and is “whole 30 compliant”!

Shop Local, folks!
