VZ 097: How to Shop Smart at a Farmers Market

In this episode of the Vegetarian Zen Podcast we’ll be discussing how to shop smart at farmers markets. These venues are a great place to shop for fresh, local veggies and fruits, plus scratch-made breads and pastries, jams and jellies, honey, soap, and lots more. Shopping at a fresh market is very different (and in our opinion, much better!) than a trip to the grocery store. We provide you with thirteen great tips to help you prepare for your outing, get the best deals, and enjoy everything the market has to offer.

First, we let you know why “traditionally-made” furnishings such as furniture, mattresses, pillows, and linens fall short on the sustainability spectrum.

Coffee Talk with Vickie and Larissa (VZ 93)

This episode of the Vegetarian Zen podcast is all about coffee. You’ll learn about some of the purported benefits of this magic brown liquid, as well as some things to look out for. We’ll also discuss the importance of buying organic, fair-trade coffee. After doing the research for this episode we checked the coffee we drink at homeand realized it wasn’t organic. A quick search and a little reading about the brandand its owner, Rogers Family Co. Coffee & Tea, led us to realize that they are a good company that practices responsible, sustainable farming. They have community aid programs in place in the countries where their coffee beans are grown. Best of all, they have multiple varieties of coffee that are organic! I chatted with a customer service rep online and later received an email from her stating that one of the owners, Jim Rogers, would like to speak to me personally. We had a very nice phone conversation. I ordered theirSan Francisco Bay Organic Rainforest Blendfor our K...
