organic local food in eckington, dc

i was super please to learn about this store saturday. big bear cafe gets all their milk and other dairy products are from the grass-fed cows of trickling springs creamery which is super awesome. but even more awesome is that they get it from timor, this super cute grocery on the corner of 2nd and rhode island NW.

i went by and the store was closed, but the sweet dude who was in the back let me in. sold me some yogurt, and told me all about the place. they get all of their produce locally. their meats from from some grassfed ranch with a name that starts with enviro. it is local. the dairy of course is local and the maple yogurt was to DIE for. they have biodynamic eggs from some other local guy (sheesh, too bad i wasn't taking notes). anyway, it is awesome. they are open from 4:30-8:30 m-f and then all day sat and sunday.

get that yogurt. i promise you won't be disappointed!

I have now been to Timor. The eggs are crazy expensive - $4.50 for a dozen -- but WORTH IT!!! The shells are twice as hard as any I've ever cracked, the yolks are beautiful deep orange, the whites stick together and act like egggwhites should. Basically, this is a perfect egg.
