HFS Prices

Since people are often curious what's in-season and offered at what prices in various places, I thought I'd take a few pics of our HFS to satisfy that curiousity.

Yesterday I had a new guy in the deli (where they wiegh it & re-fill the bar) tell me that unless you're going to eat it they usually have people get the salad at the produce department. It was when I had half-filled my bowl and run out of the local lettuce. I asked them to put more out. I told him that I did eat it, that it was my dinner and that I came there almost every day. I said he'd get used to me, at which point another person working there went by and said hi to me by name. He introduced himself & I to him. Funny, huh? I got about a pound's worth in my bowl.
Today when I went to the salad bar for my usual bowl fill-up I saw someone I knew from my raw potluck birthday party. He had a large wooden bowl that he was filling up there too! They were almost out so we both knew that we needed to ask for more, lol. It was nice to have company. The checkout person knew the tare on both of our bowls by heart too, heh.
