So my husband and I woke up at 4:45am (as usual), but this time it was not for swim practice or for any other training/work. You see, we heard on the radio that there was a new health food store coming to our area called New Flowers Farmers Market (kinda like Sprouts, Natural Grocers, etc). Anyway, the Grand Opening was today at 7am and the first 50 customers got a $50 worth of groceries.....SCORE!!! So my cute husband woke up early again and was the 4th customer to arrive at the door at 5am.
HAHA! We thought we'd score all our usual "expensive health food needs and ingredients" in no time. Thats worth the wait in the cold, right? Well, two hours later James found out that the certificate expired at noon and all they gave him was a bag of samples and random groceries. Poor guy, all that wait for nothing! We actually did score some good free produce and a few random snacks but it really wasn't worth the wake up call. We look back at today and laugh. But I have to say New Flowers did have great deals, great organic produce, and we're glad to get yet another health food store near us. The more the merrier! What have you done to get free food??
