So have you checked out your local Fresh & Easy Neighborhood Market yet? With 81 stores located in California, Arizona & Nevada, and more opening nearly every day, there’s bound to be one close by. (For your nearest market location, go HERE.)

Not quite sure what the “Fresh & Easy” markets are all about? Well here’s the 411, in their own words: “Smaller than the usual supermarket, our neighborhood sized stores are easily accessible and offer everything from everyday staples to gourmet items. Lots of fresh and wholesome food choices, including prepared meals and organic foods, make healthy eating easy and affordable. In particular, our own fresh&easy™ line of products has no added trans fats and no artificial colors or flavors. And with our in store Kitchen Table you can taste our products before you buy them. The simple packaging and labels on our private brand helps you see exactly what you’re bringing home – great food you can trust.”

Basically, it’s the place where you can pick up fruits & veggies that are (more often than not) grown locally, purchase organic (as well as delicious) prepared meals, & grab a bag or two of Doritos. Kind of like a Trader Joe’s with a few other necessary items (like Lunchables & Coke).

& the highlight of every shopping trip for my boys? That they can help scan all of our purchases… although, I love that someone else is still there to bag them all up for me.

Hope you love Fresh & Easy as much as I do.
