Going Local at Costco

On my most recent trip to Costco, I discovered a pallet of pasta sauce from a local supplier:


How local?  Well, the Costco is located in Coralville and Galassi Foods is located in Coralville.  Yep, that’s a pretty short supply chain.

I have seen the sauce at farmers’ markets and at Hy-Vee stores in the area, but it’s great to see a national retailer dedicate floor space to a local producer.

And how was the sauce?  A little sweet for my tastes, but my five year old daughter lapped it up when it was spooned over some ravioli.
