    I don't agree. There are farmer's out there with sub-par produce, but if you do your homework, find out who the quality, local farmer's are. You can get some excellent produce. If you are looking for produce that is out of season, then you are going to buy sub-par produce.

    I've had good luck with the Torrance FM.

    FYI - Sprouts and Henry's are sister stores, but Henry's is owned by Wild Oats, which is now owned by Whole Foods. I'm not sure if Sprouts is an independently owned chain.

    I do like the produce in both Sprouts and Henry's. I have both of them within a few miles of my home. Both stores purchase local produce and have an organic section.

    Albertson's typically sells a brand from Arizona that is about the sweetest yellow corn-on-the-cob I've ever had. Haven't seen it in a while, though.

    Sounds to me like you need a good Banana Bread recipe for those pesky overripe 'nanners you get stuck with.

    I've got one. Thanks, though.

    We've been buying just enough lately to keep them from getting to that point because we don't normally have enough time to bake.
