I’m having an affair.
My indiscretion with Stanley began a few months ago when Kaitlyn of Eat My Blog introduced me to this fruit and veggie all-star. Until that point I was in a monogamous relationship with a man called Trader Joe. But once I met Stanley, everything changed. Stanley lives at 1558 N. Elston. He’s not super easy to find, but the good guys never are.
So what does Stanley have to offer that leaves T. Joe falling short? Two words. Cheap Produce!
I have begun include more fruits and veggies in my diet, but while shopping solely at Trader’s, I felt restricted in the F+V department. Not the case at Stanley’s. I don’t know how they do it, but the produce is (almost always) super affordable.
They also have a limited selection of other food staples like dairy, grains, and meats. Those prices are usually cheaper than ol’ Joe’s also (I now get my sour cream and eggs at Stan’s as well).
The only discernible drawback to Stanley’s is the fact that often the produce can be on the ripe side, and consuming within the week is usually advisable. But other than that, I think this produce palace is a gift from Mother Nature.
Sorry Joe, I love you so,
but your for fruits and veggies,
Stanley’s is the place to go.
