The past few posts, the Triumph Kitchen has been encouraging you to eat fresh and look at ingredients listed on packaged foods. I have been asked... "Where does the Triumph Kitchen go for food?"
We do find ourselves at Fred Meyer a lot. Not that because it is the best place to go, but rather it is close to the house and I can do my one stop shopping there. Need socks for the little ones? Need produce? Baby wipes? Sports shorts? I can get it all there. However, we do have a few favorite local Central Oregon places that we like to buy from. Here are just a few:
1. Savory Spice Shop in Old Mill District.
We love this place. Filled with spices you can try before you buy. I guarantee you will keep going back for more. The plus side? No fillers and chemicals like from the grocery store. Just good hearty ingredients to spice your poultry, popcorn, soups, chili, etc...
2. Ryan's Produce or School House Produce
Both of these local Redmond produce shops offer farm fresh produce. Get it in season and it is all delicious!
3. Farm to Friends
Farm to Friends is an online company that delivers Farm Fresh produce to your door. Pick the size of box your family needs and it will be delivered based upon their delivery schedule posted online. You can even go online and trade one ingredient for another! We have heard wonderful things from friends about this service!
4. Backporch Coffee Roasters
Owned by a childhood friend of mine, I know, personally the hard work, travel and effort that has gone into this company. Dave and Majell Beach build this company from the ground up and constantly travel the world picking out their own beans, roasting it locally and serving Bend with love. You can buy coffee grounds or enjoy your coffee onsite!
5. Redmond Smokehouse
Buy meat fresh from their meat case, or enjoy treats from Redmond Smokehouse They support local farmers and 4H- delicious!
Now... of course... your recipe of the day!
