The Skeptical Consumer: The Produce Exchange

Somebody has to be the insensitive jerk to post the first non-bridge related item… and I guess that insensitive jerk will have to be me.

A very brief remark: they’re selling small, ripe avocados three for a dollar at Mid-Town Global Market’s Produce Exchange. It’s a golden opportunity to make guac, or do what I do: slice ’em open, take out the pit, sprinkle some sea salt and pepper on them and just dig in with a spoon.

I want to generally note that in this bountiful season, prices are low and quality’s high over at the Produce Exchange. For less that four bucks, I got the aforementioned avocados, a bunch of Minnesota-grown potatoes and green beans. Dinner’s going to be great tonight.

    Way to be, Jim.

    Mmmm… avocado. I never used to like those when I was a kid. Good thing I wised up.

    You could have waited a couple more weeks.

    As someone who’s struggled with how exactly to keep blogging about this, I’d say there’d be absolutely nothing up here if we waited a couple weeks to talk about anything else.

    So I’m going to assume you’re kidding, Aaron. Since you’re a reasonable guy and all.

    I’m jonesing to get my Fringe on, personally.

    While it may be unpopular at a time like this, it’s still our duty to eat avocados. We eat them over here so they don’t eat them over there.

    I think Ed’s really put things into perspective. That said, I think I may save one of the three avocados for tomorrow.

    Yes, I was joking. :-)
