Bad Joan goes to the Three Amigos... AND starts a Cooking Blog!

If you live in Los Angeles you should be buying your produce from the Three Amigos on Fairfax and Rosewood.  They are a small produce only store and the prices are half of what they are in the supermarket!  It is operated by the "three amigos."  They get seasonal fruits, veggies, and spices and there is always something new and interesting to try.  This shop is like a permanent farmer's market! 

If you are not in LA but are interested in finding a store like this near you, a good way to do so is to find out where the local restaurants get their produce (stores like this do most of their business by selling wholesale to restaurants).  If you find one near you or know of one in your area post about it in the comments section so others in your area can find it! 

To prepare for the launch of her cooking blog Bad Joan took a recent trip to the Three Amigos in her new Lotta Stensson tunic.  Check it out...




What Bad Joan is wearing:
Bali Cross Body Bag by Carla Mancini - Retail $245 / Sale $99
(Shorts are Trovata and shoes are Aldo)


PLUS Bad Joan's cooking blog is live!  Check it out HERE.  The first couple recipes are up and new recipes and tips will be added each week.  Learn how to eat well and make the most out of what is in your refrigerator...



Take care of yourself from the inside out!

GTBB,
Bad Joan

How cool you have a place like this nearby! I will definitely need to find out if there is a grocery like Three Amigos in my area (Kansas City). I mostly get my produce at the farmer's market anyway though...lol.

Mademoiselle Poirot said...

Salut! Thanks for your comment on my blog, I really appreciate it. These pics are great and if I ever come across something like "the three amigos" here in London, I'll let you know ;-)

I really like your outfit and the fact that you put down the retail & sales prices - I hardly ever buy something for the full price anymore since there's always some sort of sale just around the corner here.

Have a great week, Love from London xo
