Stop spending your money at Safeway(poor quality and higher prices)
J & H Market on Roblin Blvd is selling local asparagus, cheaper and way better quality.

Never, EVER buy produce from Superstore. That's a fact.

We love Asparagus, and will definitely check this out!

....speaking of produce.... has anyone tried Green Giant potatoes? I never knew potatoes could taste that good. Screw the guy with the carrot. He ships all the good stuff out of province and we get crap here. (at least that the way I see it.)

6950 Roblin past the perimeter on the left hand side,about 1/4 mile, just before the road turns into 2 lanes from 4 lanes, open at 9AM except Sundays open at 10.
They are online. J&H Garden Center
This place in season is so busy, because the lady running it has sourced great local farmers, and out of province suppliers.
Today try her watermellon- incrediby sweet and loaded with seeds, but it is so tasty.
Made in Manitoba everything.

Used to buy some Yukon Gold potatoes from PEI that was part of a church christmas fundraiser. DAMN! those were good! High quality, none of this cutting off half the freakin potato to get around bad spots. Not one single rotten or even bruised potato in the bunch and over the three years I had access to them I think I purchased like 15 bags? I even gave some away to family at Christmas time the one year.

The Manitoba grown potatoes are equally awesome, plus the J&H stuff is always great. They have a brand ot tomatoes, grown in a local greenhouse that is so tasty. They aren't always available because the producer is almost allways sold out to the high end restaurants.
