Where I Buy Food

Capitalism is one of the many things I love about America. Competition drives pricing and often gives the consumer so many choices. Sometimes too many choices.

Below is a short list of the things I frequently purchase, at the best price, or for convenience:

Kroger - almost everything

org.carrots, org.celery and org.peanut butter

all natural sour cream - Daisy brand

Whole Foods

10% discount if you buy a case (12) of something. Sometimes with coupons, this can make a good deal.

Reverse Osmosis water for kombucha (machine is near cash registers)

San J Tamari soy sauce

coconut milk

Brown Cow Yogurt, Cream Top - Maple is our favorite flavor

bulk spices, beans, grains

organic tortilla chips

nitrate-free pork: bacon, sausage, hot dogs

Organic Valley butter

org. frozen veggies

Asian Market (in same strip mall as TJ Maxx - Rodney Parham & Reservoir)

tahini, for huge batches of hummus

feta cheese

Drug Emporium (Rodney Parham & Reservoir)

Sprouted bread and tortillas, Food for Life brand

raw cheese

feta cheese

organic green tea

Brown Cow yogurt

Bragg’s Apple Cider Vinegar

rice pasta

coconut water for rehydration

Azure Standard - bulk ordering

produce - organic apples, pears

frozen spinach

bulk grains - quinoa, beans, oats, lentils, popcorn

glass jars, plastic lids

org. raisins, org. bulk nuts

Country Life - bulk ordering

I used to order from CL, but since finding Azure, I think for simplicity, I will only order from Azure.


maple syrup




Meats, Eggs, Produce - Locally Grown

Arkansas Sustainability Network

Argenta Market in North Little Rock

River Market in Little Rock

What would you add to the list?

  1. Thank you so much for posting this info. Very helpful!

  2. Hey Julie,
    Have you tried using organic plain whole-milk yogurt in place of sour cream? We can't even tell the difference, and we love that it's cultured, with no fillers (like the nonfat milk) to thicken it. :)

  3. Kiara - yes, I have. However, I usually forget about it because I'm in such a habit of using sour cream! :)
