Brand Next Door - Rising Sun Produce

Tuesday, August 12, 2014

The big news in our apartment is Raz and I are now on a house hunt. It's exciting and not really that scary and frustrating because when I shop, I just want to buy what I want, but house hunting is more like a prolonged eBay auction and I'm not into getting outbid.

So, in our ongoing quest for a nest, Raz and I have been exploring a lot of neighborhoods. We love finding new spots of all kinds and when we were aggressively pre-stalking a house before our next day tour, we drove by this cute little spot.

Doesn't it look like the sun is kinda "rising" behind it? Or to the side? Either way, blame my awesome photo skillz.

Take Eastern Washington's fruit stands and stick one close to the U District with vegan/GF products and check out people wearing bandannas and you'll find Rising Sun Produce. It brought me back to the other side of the mountains and how much fun I have weighing out loads and loads of freshly picked awesomeness. The 2 for $3 pineapple sign got us in and the old school glass bottles of pop kept us there. 

Coconuts! One time my dad brought one home, cracked it with a machete and we drank the juice right in the kitchen. I saw these and thought about that. Maybe I'll make Raz reenact that moment for an upcoming date night/Watching Raz Cook.
We bought some not-pictured tomatoes that tasted almost as good as Papa's and I poked at these tomatillos. I have a very special affection for salsa verde.

Tomatillos are weird looking and I don't get them, so I obsessively stare/take pics of them.

I have to admit, I didn't actually purchase any of these cookies, but I did appreciate the catering to my GF and vegan friends, particularly my GF GF, Carlovilla, who is now stateside and texting me from SoCal. 
Get. In. Mah. Bellayyyyyy.

AND THE PIECE DE RESISTANCE - THE ANCHOR ROOT BEER. I should have hidden one in our basket at check out, but I've been trying to be good and get my Fuel score pumping, but not my extra cals. I'm not counting them or anything, just trying to shop the perimeter. Technically, though, these were on the perimeter, so the moral of this story is Anchor Root Beer Bottles, I will be back for you. 
How cool are these old school bottles? I used to drink Henry Weinhard's sixers almost daily when I was little spending summers in the Chelan. Obviously I can't sustain that lifestyle now, but it was good while it lasted. 
Rising Sun is open 8 a.m. - 8 p.m. every day. We got a basket of all sorts of goodies and spent $10. If you're driving by, stop in. They have a parking lot and everything.
