Local Excellence…

imageI went to Quality Fruitland today to pick up some of their amazing tuna salad from the deli. To my surprise I came across the most exquisite flower arrangements.  The market was in full swing for fall. My three year old daughter was in awe of the selection of amazingly large and gorgeous pumpkins and gourds! The colors of the fall produce were just awesome. Bright pops of color for your doorstep! All the pumpkins, gourds, and flowers are grown locally. I love supportive local businesses and farms. Quality Fruitland definitely had that local family feel.

In fact, if I ever tie the knot for a second time I am definitely calling Arlene, the florist at Quality Fruitland. Her arrangements were unique, classy, festive, and simply beautiful. She explained to me that after hollowing out the pumpkins she uses bleach to kill the bacteria. Then she uses a trick of spraying hairspray inside the pumpkins to seal them before stuffing them with a gorgeous array of flowers. Actually, I don’t think I can wait for wedding number two! I’m calling Arlene to create an arrangement for my table for this Thanksgiving and I promise to post pictures!


If you live in the east bay area you have to check this adorable high quality market out!
