June 13, 2012: Shopping Local

Today was one of those days that confirms that my neighborhood is the best. 
So good in fact that it brought be out of my blogging shell. 

The long Summer days are begging me to stay outside for as long as possible in the evenings, so I headed out post-work to soak up the 'hood. 
I ended up also making some investments in the local economy. 

My first stop was the Farmer's Market for the sweet strawberries of Summer and some bright red flowers. Second stop: Buyer's Best Friend, our newest Haight Street neighbor, where I sampled to my heart's content and picked up a delightful array of locally made and green goodies.

Today I'm thankful for local shopping.

If I could I would use only what I could buy in my neighborhood, grown in my garden, and carry home in my arms. Luckily this place has some fab goods because I plow through my strawberry patch's berries  quicker than would sustain me!
