I prefer to buy my produce from local farmers. I think it is healthier to eat in-season fruits and veggies that have not been treated with pesticides, and I think it is better for the environment that the food travels less than 100 miles to get to me. Blah, blah, blah. Sometimes I forget an ingredient and buy it at California Market. Yesterday I was making a coconut milk-based curry sauce and I needed ginger and limes. I was also out of onions, though I didn’t need them for the curry.
Four limes, two white onions, and a piece of ginger the size of my palm? $1.89. For serious.
