So recently I found out that a local vendor, Costantino’s Venda Ravioli also grinds meat fresh on premises. A pound of lean ground sirloin is $4 whereas at the supermarket a pound of 80/20 is over $5 and the meat is of questionable character to begin with. The thing is, the meat has been in the fridge for a couple days and it’s still red. Do that with a supermarket pack and it’s brown by the second day.
When it comes to food local vendors are the absolute best. There’s Spezia, which specializes in gluten free recipes but also has a selection of meats that is very good, not to mention that the speck is fantastic.
Then of course for sweet stuff, nothing can beat Nancy’s Fancies Cakes! I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, this woman knows the purpose of cake and that is to be a vehicle for frosting.
I like the fact that my money supports local vendors.
