Berkeley Bowl Best Buys

It seems lately BB has had some great lettuce buys. This week it is Eartbound Farms 6 heads of organic heirloom lettuce for 99 cents.

Also, there is just so much in the market, I thought I'd start a thread so if anyone finds anything really great, it would be a good place to point it out.

There were ramp bulps in the mushroom section yesterday. I never saw those before and started a thread on home cooking about how to use them.

Also, there have been Daisy tangerines. I boutght some last week and became a fan. They remind me of honey tangerines but also have a nice tang.

I have a flickr photostream about BB.

It started because some friends in Guatemala couldn't believe the variety of produce, groceries ... and beer ... in the Bay Area. I was photographing everything in other contries, but had nothing from home to show. It is starting to evolve for me into a notebook of what Ive tried and whether or not I liked it, though that is in the early stages. Once past the first page, produce is alphabetized. Beer is at the end.

I just shop at the store on Heinz,
