Out of Town Action, Part II

Posted by on January 4 at 9:54 AM

This article provides yet another reason why Portland is currently better than Seattle. It’s the sandwiches. Well, actually the article goes on about “local” food and blah blah, but the reason I covet the New Seasons chain is their fresh, delicious sandwiches, with their multitude of toppings, and the fact that you don’t have to beg for avocados, and wide array of condiments… I hate QFC sandwiches. And Madison Market needs to get with the sandwiches-to-order program.

Also: Amy Kate, please note that here is an example of a grocery store that lists those Seafood Watch guidelines.

Why should you avoid farmed salmon?

Because salmon farms are ecological catastrophes, filling rivers or estuaries where they are located with hyper-concentrated amounts of fish shit, food, antibiotics and other nutrients that destroy the biological balance of the water; because the fish get out and interfere with the spawning habits of endangered wild salmon; because they introduce diseases in areas where the wildlife has no natural protection; and several other reasons. Basically, a fish farm is more damaging to the water than city-sized open sewer pipes.

I did not know this! Thank you.
