It's not West Side, but I saw a sign for "Bloom's Farmer's Market" opening soon on the corner of Tropicana/Topaz.

Fresh and easy markets will be opening by the end of the year. They are supposed to have a great variety of produce at lower prices like Sunflower markets. there are 11 or so locations opening up all over the valley.
So that's what it is. We are getting one on Lake Mead.

Bloom's is a Kosher Israeli supermarket, I went tonight, huge selection of Kosher stuff, but they don't have much produce, they must not know what a farmer's market really is...

Sunflower market is good by the valley's standards. However, the valley's standards for produce are quite low.

In all my years of living here, I've never gotten really good produce...it's the desert, nothing is grown here, so I can't expect that wonderful farm fresh, Mom and Pop vegetable stand produce I grew up with on the East Coast..

I went in the Fresh and Easy store on Del Webb, in SunCity Summerlin over the weekend..I was not impressed. I don't like things "pre-packaged" and I didn't think they had such a large selection either. I did get some nice iceberg lettuce for 98 cents a head...really nice, no brown spots and solid..

If I don't get my produce at Whole Foods, I usually shop for it at Smith's or Costco. Once in a while I also hit the Sunflower Market, but it's so far out of my way, I don't get there too often....Albertsons produce is passable...but oh so expensive

I've always wondered why grapes are so expensive here and low quality. After all, the vally seems to get their grapes from Chile, which is the same place we got them from back home. However, the grapes here are always expensive and spoil quickly.

Years ago we used to be able to get fresh artichokes from Pahrump in our grocery stores...there's a place that grows them/or used to grow them up there.

Even that stopped over the last few years, most of the ones I buy are from California now...
