    What is one food item that you prefer buying from a farmers market than a grocery store? Why?

    I prefer buying corn at the farmers markets, always so much better. I can’t wait for it to be corn season! I also love getting a homemade salsa mmmm

    How have you adjusted your habits to use a grocery list and account for things you already have at home? Do you use pen and paper, or have you gone digital?

    I have gone digital! I use the notepad app on my iPhone and now that it has check boxes, it feels a lot like a normal list!

    I started to collect food scrapes in my bin and compost them in a residential green composting bin (family members). I live in an apartment building and reached out to the property managers to see if we could get a compost option for the tenants. Hopefully by the end of this month I’ll have a composting option for my building!
