    have a good time in Ottawa, Mark. I think you will see some good Canadian aaointimn there, as well as good aaointimn from other parts of the world. The best aaointimn is probably short since the animator retains control rather than working to the demands of a producer who may have very poor taste.

    Hi, we purchase from UNFI as well thrugoh a local co-op and I love it because on their website they have the catalogs to browse thrugoh (once you join a co-op and get a login, etc..) and a SALE catalog! Some of the prices in UNFI are NOT cheaper than you can get them from the grocery store and local stores run GREAT SALES! I get emails from Krogers and Whole Foods and I shop in those stores for the sale products! If you really want to eat organic then you and your family can eat pretty much ONLY what happens to be on sale! It is amazing how much you will save and how you WILL NOT spend one cent more by buying organic! I shop at Whole Foods on the day their items go on sale and Kroger after the sale paper comes out and I shop the sales only from UNFI and my co-op allows splits which means that if an item comes 12 to a case then you can buy 6 and another member can buy 6! Some co-ops do not allow splits but mine does! You may have several co-ops to choose from in your area and if you do then you can call and ask the leader if there are any fees and if they allow splits! Mine also does not cost to be a member, we have upwards of 50 people buying but we have about 30 regulars that order every month and it is plenty to keep our co-op going! Your co-op will also qualify for EXTRA specials according to how much you buy monthly from UNFI and those are unbeatable! I love my co-op and hopefully you will find one too!
