    I would like to know more of your best primal food sources.

      I don't have much new to add:

      Local farm market
      Trader Joe's
      Amazon.com (I buy coconut milk by the case, haha)
      Vital Choice Wild Seafood & Organics
      Ethnic markets/grocery stores

      BTW...I'm thinking of putting together a Philadelphia Primal/Paleo meet up for the summer. Are you nearby? Would you be interested?

              Trader Joe's is my #1 go-to place, and I'm looking at moving to a state that doesn't have one and sorta freaking out about having to learn to live without their products.

                Kitana: that happened to my daughter when they moved to Syracuse, NY. When she visits me or I'm going there, she stocks up. I wish TJ's would get an online store.

                  - Cow-pooled for beef (1/16 disappears fast, though)
                  - local farm delivery for organic heirloom veggies (splitting orders with a friend)
                  - Butcher shop for pork/chicken/etc (Aubrey's Meats... I loves you!)

                  Only store I visit infrequently is Nature's Food Pantry, and it's mostly for spices, 35% cream, eggs and the occasional particular veggie I want. Oh, I sometimes hit Loblaws for bags of frozen blueberries and strawberries (and coffee), but that's it.

                    my garden
                    luckyvitamin/ iherb

                      NutsOnline is a good choice for various nuts, seeds, teas and spices. Huge selection, good prices.

                        I never knew amazon had stuff. Will have to check that out.

                        Here in central Ohio, I go to TJ's and we have a chain store, Giant Eagle that is also pretty good on primal stuff. There is also a store I found online that is more like a farmers market that is independently owned and operated in Utica, OH. If I have time I may check it out this weekend.

                          I love my Mexican and Asian markets for meats other than the basic beef/chicken/pork stuff, things like goat and goose, and for parts of the animal that I am just starting to experiment with cooking. (I have a batch of beef heart biltong in process.)

                            Gelson's has an awesome selection of pates and veggies. I also scored a bunch of unsweetened coconut and full-fat Greek yogurt there. I haven't investigated the meat counter yet.

                            Their prices, however, make me weep.
