Delightfully Free is in Lassens Markets!

Lassens in Ventura, CA

What a great market Lassens is!! They do it right when it comes to organic, natural, healthy produce and products. Little wonder, since they've been doing it this way since 1971 when Hilmar & Oda Lassen opened the first of an eventual 11 Lassens in Camarillo, California. In addition to the original location in Camarillo, Lassens has markets in these Southern California locations: Ventura, Oxnard, Santa Barbara, Santa Maria, Simi Valley, Santa Clarita, Thousand Oaks, Los Feliz, Bakersfield and their newest store in Fresno.

I am so honored and grateful that Lassens is carrying Delightfully Free. It's just the place where I'd want my book to be available. it is on display at the Ventura Store which I visited on my way back from my book signing at Savoy Cafe & Deli in Santa Barbara.

So, now you can not only buy the book at Lassens, but, depending on the size of the Lassens you're in, you can purchase most and usually everything you need to get started on the recipes. Their aisles seem to be bursting with gluten-free, dairy-free and refined sugar-free ingredients. They sell most of them in pre-packaged containers, but, if you like to shop bulk, take a look at what the Ventura market has to offer:

Bulk Food Section at Lassens in Ventura, CA

Now THAT'S a bulk foods section. My gosh, I couldn't even fit it all in frame! Looking up and seeing this was like rounding the corner on a mountain trail and seeing a Redwood!

It is such a good feeling knowing that a store with Lassens' standards and approach to healthy eating is proudly carrying Delightfully Free. I am talking with them about doing some book signings at a couple of their stores and, when something gets scheduled, I will be sure to let you know. I'd really enjoy meeting and talking with you.

If you haven't been to a Lassens, have a little fun and go to one. I bet you'll find some great products you bring home with you! Their stores in Ventura, Thousand Oaks, Bakersfield and Fresno have great delis and eating areas where you can get breakfast, lunch or dinner. They're closed on Sundays.
