Then I came home and went into a Target. This is something that's bothered me before...the walkie talkies! I really do not like to hear the front end managers hassle the poor cashiers about offering credit cards to the customers. "It's time to rock and roll, team Target!" Maybe the Virginia humidity is getting to me, but that makes me sick. Really. And I let Target know!
So, I started thinking about how I really need to be more diligent about eating at locally-owned restaurants and supporting small businesses. Although, do locally-owned supermarkets even exist? That's what led me to our farmers' market this morning. I'm going to try to purchase as many of my groceries as I can from them. I don't care if it costs a little bit more. Besides, where else can you shop and also play with a sweet little goat?
I bought the usual things...lettuce, cucumber, cantaloupe, strawberries, and my favorite, tomatoes! It's that time of year! Tomato sandwiches!!! Don't let your summer go by without having a tomato sandwich!

Have you noticed big businesses taking over your city? Does the background noise of employee to employee conversations over walkie talkies at Target bug you? Or, do you have some favorite local shops and restaurant? Please share in the comments below!
