Trey and I made a quick stop down there the other afternoon.  We enjoyed perusing through the quaint shop and picking up a few items (Lemon olive oil from All Spice, organic bell peppers, and Great Harvest Bread.  Below are some pics for you enjoyment….it hardly captures the beauty of all the colorful and nutritious produce.

Until next time…
