A late in the evening trip to Whole Foods on Sunday (dangerous for the wallet!) turned up great two local food items in this early spring time of veggies from California.
#1 Caromont Farm Chevre was so good, I could have eaten it with a spoon. We used it on a roasted veggie pizza and in our salad instead, but it is by far the best soft goat cheese I've ever had, and it's made in Esmont, right here in Albemarle County. I'm guess fewer than 50 food miles from goat to table : )
#2 Shenandoah Joe's coffee
I'm not sure which blend we have because Steve picked it out while I was in the cheese department, but beans roasted right here in Charlottesville really do make a difference. Obviously more food miles involved here, but at least we're supporting a local business.
