If you can't make it to a farmers market...

...and you want to save a chunk of cash on your grocery bills, I wanted to let you all know about a hidden gem of a store in Culver City/Marina Del Rey. It's called Marina Farms and it is a produce-only grocery store. The fruits and veggies won't match the Santa Monica farmer's market in selection nor quality, but it is even a tiny bit better than Whole Foods, but at a fraction of the cost. Gorgeous ripe, red plum tomatoes at 88 cents a pound. Bunches of herbs for under a dollar. Fresh, local grapefruit at 3/$1.25. When I went yesterday I walked out with three full grocery bags of peak veggies and fruit for about $20. I know it's a bit out of the way, but if you are in the area, check it out!
