The advent of the grocery store has made life easier for hunter-gatherers and more difficult for those in charge of extracting arrowheads from the corned beef. Join the agricultural revolution with today’s Groupon: for $7, you get $15 worth of locally sourced produce and groceries at Carlsbad Ranch Market in Carlsbad.
Carlsbad Ranch Market peddles healthy snacks and gourmet fare shaded by an edible Eden of locally sourced and organic produce. Most of the market's fruits and veggies ripen on the branch and grow free of pesticides in order to retain their robust flavors and nutrients. Currently in season, local strawberries contain more vitamin C than a whole basket of decorative fruit. Snacks include locally triangulated tortilla chips, and a hot food bar bubbles with fresh vegetarian soup ($3.89/lb.). For leafy noshing, Carlsbad Ranch Market's salad bar ($5.99/lb.) rounds up the store's ripest herbage to mix and match. The obliging staff is always happy to help shoppers determine the ripeness of a fruit or vegetable without resorting to magic 8 balls or hammers.
Carlsbad Ranch Market
Before shoppers at Carlsbad Ranch Market even step into the store, they are greeted with fresh produce resting in wooden crates just outside the door. Whether or not they decide to pause and check out the cornucopia of fruits and veggies, once they step inside they’ll face mountains more. The family-owned shop is dedicated to sustainability, bringing local and seasonal produce and locally made household goods to its customers as affordably as possible. The store’s stock of produce also fills an in-house vegetarian salad bar and a soup-of-the-day selection, which, like an un-oiled tinman doing the macarena, rotates regularly.
