Today, I had business in Berkeley. After my meeting, I headed over to Berkeley Bowl, an amazing produce, meat, fish, poultry, grocery market.
While I now buy most of my produce at my local Farmer's Market, whenever my travels take me to Berkeley, I stop here for what has to be one of the largest arrays for fresh fruits and vegetables anywhere...and at some of the best prices around.
This is the place to go if you need fresh plums in the middle of winter. I was after juice oranges today and could choose from those from Texas or those from California. When it came to apples, there were dozens of varieties, both organic and traditional.
I tend to get carried away at Berkeley Bowl and today was no exception...I filled my cart with two kinds of apples, juice oranges from Texas, brussels sprouts, an avocado, blueberries, raspberries, yams, fingerling potatoes, and zucchinis..both green and yellow ones. Passing by the prepared food section of the market, I picked up a rotisseried lemon herb chicken for dinner tonight. YUM!
