You have to bring your own bags or pay .11/bag, which means I may need to find me some reusables. They also have this weird checkout system where the checker scans all your items and puts them into the cart of the person who checked out ahead of you. Then you take your cart to this bagging area to put into bags. It works, but it's just different from anything I've ever seen. The store also does not take coupons, and doesn't have every item like a regular store would. For now it will do.
We've also been told by countless people that we need to go to the Public Market for produce. It's a year round outdoor market on Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday. The boys and I decided to go on an adventure today to see what it was all about!
|Our mail woman was pretty surprised we "went all the way to the market" Not sure if it's a sketchy area or what.|
|These littles had a good time and a vendor even gave them a free bag of kettle chips to munch on while I shopped.|
|Beautiful rainbow of colors!|
|Romane lettuce: $1/each. Strawberries: 3 for $5. 3 lb. Pineapple: $1.50. Blueberries: $1.50. Cucumbers and Zucchini: 3 for $1. Spinach $1. 4 lbs. of apples $3. **I spy a little snitch that took a chunk out of an apple already!**|
|The boys loved eating berries from the market for lunch. (We scored this little table for $10 on Craigslist. The boys love to sit out and have a "picnic")|
Who wouldn't love these little berry munching humans?!?
There have obviously been lots of adjustments, but so far we have really enjoyed Rochester and are excited for many more fun adventures to share!
