My friend is anaphylactic to milk, meaning if she has a tiny little bit of milk or a milk derivative in her food, she winds up at the ER, because her throat closes up. Trust me if she could shop at Kroger, she would. FYI, the brands of fresh chicken that Kroger carries are injected with milk derivatives & the fresh fruit is injected with high fructose corn syrup so that the fruit looks better, longer. High fructose corn syrup is not a milk derivative, but that fact still strikes me as unappetizing. Apparently, these practices are standard for grocery chains. She has to buy free range chicken that hasn't been injected with milk derivatives and fresh bison (her body does not tolerate beef) from Wild Oats. If you ever get the chance to go to a Whole Foods store, go. The food is so much more flavorful than what Kroger, Publix and Food Lion, and Jr's Market offers. You will be an instant convert, trust me.
Thanks for the info on the Farmer's Market, however, I work full-time, (as does my friend) so I wouldn't be able to get food on Tues or Friday mornings.
Yay, one petition signer already!
