Life Source Appreciates Their Customers

Saturday my mom called me to ask if I'd seen what was happening down at Life Source. I felt like I should have known, keeping a calendar of Salem activities and all. She told me that the long-time organic and health conscious grocery store in South Salem was having a customer appreciation day. I had to get down there. Not only do I shop there, but I know their food is pretty awesome and hoped they were serving up something yummy.

When we got down to the store, I saw I wouldn't be disappointed. Not only were there plates of delicious vegetarian food going around but many (mostly local) companies were handing out samples of their products.

At the tables we saw children's books, pop sweetened with stevia, Oakshire Overcast Espresso Stout, hot spiced Chaucer's mead, coconut water, salsa from Eugene, olive oil made in Keizer, organic chocolate, licorice, and much more. Among the vegetarian dishes being served were quinoa quiche, grilled corn on the cob, garlic navy beans, and carrot cake. If you love good food, you can usually pick up a quick nutricious meal at the Life Source buffet. And boy does their food taste good!

I am so happy I was able to attend this event. From the folk music to the product samples to the sense of community, I can tell Life Source is very appreciative of us Salemites. They already do so much for our community (harvest swap, Ignite Salem sponsors, etc.). And looking at the number of customers at the event, I can tell many Salemites appreciate having Life Source in their community.

If you missed the event, don't worry! You can still get a similar effect by browsing the aisles of the grocery store (drowning in the smells of their buffet) and picking up something that catches your eye but normally wouldn't buy. You may surprise yourself!

I must confess, I had to smile at their 59 cent (each) brown eggs. Of course they were probably laid by hens fed only organically raised crickets. I buy my Jumbo eggs at WINCO for $1.19 per dozen. That seems like a considerable difference to me, but to LifeSource patrons, the difference is probably just chicken feed.
