    There's a market in town that sells local farm fresh eggs, local grass-fed beef, and local uncured "fresh air" bacon. They actually know me by name. I get all my eggs there this time of year because the farmer's markets are not operating in the winter.

    Yup! The butcher shop (not only because the butcher calls me Gorgeous when I come in) and the farmstand next door where I go several times a week all year long. I'm thinking about working for them this coming summer produce season because they are CONSTANTLY busy!
    Of all the paths you take in life, make sure a few of them are dirt.

    Every few months I go to Whole Foods, where I make a beeline for the meat counter and buy all the grass-fed beef fat they have (for tallow) and nothing else. In the warmer months we have a local farmers market twice a week. Whenever the egg vendor sees me coming, he starts pulling out two dozen eggs. Man, I can't wait for the market to start up again!

    The gym. Where the manager calls everyone by name (don't know how he does it!) And the Amish farmer where we buy raw milk, eggs and pastured meats.

    Well... this is kind of opposite, but happened to me the other day. I have pretty much abandoned our local grocery because I found a Dutch produce market, (like Amish/Mennonite) but I went to the local the other day, and the clerk was like.... "I haven't seen you for a long time, I thought maybe you were starving to death."

    Nothing quite like that. The farmer's market vendors all know me because I used to sell our honey there, and I'm known at the local health food store, but I don't buy the same thing every time I go. I just get what ever is fresh so it changes all the time. We have our own chickens, buy half a beef at a time and this week we are butchering 2 pigs hubby raised so we don't buy very much in the way of protein.

    There are usually firefighters working out at the university gym I go to (in Amsterdam) and a lot of times I see the same guys buying food at the Albert Heijn nearby (for cooking at the station I assume). One day I was in line to checkout, like 10 people behind a fireman at the register, and then he points at me, says something I don't understand and does "air push ups."

    Also at an espresso bar on campus, the "grumpy lady" has started making me a cappuccino without asking. One day she tried to give me a muffin too (for free) and I politely declined. In retrospect I should've just taken the damn muffin and gifted it to someone later.

    Well not in a takeaway kind of place like that, but my butcher knows me well, and is always so friendly.
