Food Haul 7.12.13

Food Haul Header

I totally spaced on remembering to take pictures of everything this week.  I do have a few pictures, just not of everything.  There was no Canton Farmers Market this past weekend due to the holiday.  Can’t wait for next week!

On Tuesdays Eastern Market and the Wayne Metro Community action agency is hosting a mobile farmers market in Inkster.  (If you click this link, you can see the full listing of Market stands that Eastern Market is hosting this season, there are a bunch!)  Inkster is somewhat of a food desert so I was glad to hear this.  Local toddler and I decided to go check it out.  It is hosted in front of Starfish Family Services at 3000 Hively, near to Cherry Hill and Middlebelt.  They are open from 2pm-5pm.  It was small but quite a few options were available.

Local toddler selected the yellow grape tomatoes and ate half the container before we even left.  We also got some broccoli and zucchini.  We spent $4.25 at the market.  It was a nice little set-up and I was glad to see it in that area.

Our Door to Door Organics order this week is not photographed.  Well, I do have a picture of local toddler and what he was up to when I was opening the boxes.

Somehow my son has all of the warehouse staff wrapped around his finger and they always make sure he gets an orange (or two!)  There were berries in the freebie bin so he grabbed one of those as well.  I’m a little scatterbrained right now and I totally forgot he had berries.  While I was bringing the boxes in, he decided to make a berry pie.  (The pie toy is the super sorting pie from Learning Resources, it is so cute.)  He also ate an untold number of berries.  Judging from the stains on his shirt they are delightfully juicy.  Being the good blogger I am, I took a picture before cleaning up.

Cucumber 1
Russet Potatoes 2
Red Leaf Lettuce 1
Red or Green Bell Pepper, small 1

There was also a random trip to Kroger thrown in there this week.  We bought hamburger buns, almond milk, coffee, cereal, tuna, bread, a ton of yogurt, Clif and Larabars, and some other random junk.  Random junk was some potato chips and my favorite junk food ever: Better Made corn pops.  So addictive, I hand the bag to my husband and make him hide it!  We spent about $40 there.

Food costs for the week was $95.25.
