Expressly Local

Below is an email I just got from one of my new favorite food stores called "Expressly Local."  The store owners are not only very nice... they dedicated to local and organic food.  It's located on King St. across from Mc'Donalds.  Park on the street.  It's worth the trip!  Local tender organic spinach in the winter, raw milk, Ethiopian food, beautiful root vegetables, frozen meats, nuts, breads, etc.  Wow!  Nutrient-dense food.  Bring your own bag (reduce waste).
