What's Local at Costco - Bucktown

Local's Where You Find It

As my late Mother-in-Law would say, we did a numba at the Chicago Costco today. Amazing how a bunch of $15 bottles of wine can add up. As always, we're on the lookout for all things local. And a localvore can always find something.

Of course, Wisconsin cheeses; the kidz love the convenience of sliced Tillmook cheddar, but I held strong and purchased some Organic Creamery sharp cheddar instead. We found a 10 lb bag of Wisconsin red potatoes (luckily we're a boiled potato lovin' family) and a 10 lb bag of red delicious apples from Minnesota (luckily we're an apple lovin' family). To burnish our local street cred, we snickered at the grown in a test-tube baby bell peppers.
