We then moved on to the Local and Organic Showcase and met up with some of Whole Foods Glastonbury's favorite local vendors!
First we started with Project Fresh Juice, a local company out of New Haven, CT. Project Fresh uses a natural cold pressure process to keep their juices safe, full of flavor, and bursting with fiber and protein — with no need for additives, preservatives, or pasteurization. Offered in flavors like Spicy Maple Lemonade, Carrot Apple Ginger Blend, Whole Deep Kale Blend, Whole Deep Beet Blend, and Easy Pink Lemonade. My fave, the spicy maple lemonade. What a kick! And oh so good!

Then we sampled some of the refreshing ice cream from Tea-rrific! GOOD!!! Tea-rrific Ice Cream is just what it sounds like - tea infused ice cream. I loved the delicate and subtle hints of the Chamomile, Masala Chai, London Mist, Ginger Matcha, and Chunky Ginger Matcha, that they are made from. My fave was the chunky Ginger Matcha as I loved the play on texture.

Then we learned all about natural soap from the soap nut lady (that's what the cowboy keeps calling her) from YoreGanics, makers of all-natural soap products and skin care. I absolutely loved founder Kim Mendes' story about her holistic journey to health and her family's skin care issues. You simply must try her products. I've been using her Yore Balm - Bye Bye Dry skin care balm on my dry skin patches, and already 7 days later I'm experiencing a marked improvement!

Are you lucky enough to have a Whole Foods Market near you?
I love taking the ride to the Whole Foods in the Hartford area.
And I keep a-wishing-and-a-hoping that one will come to my
shoreline community of Branford / Guilford / Madison someday!
