lived in NB years ago, visited several times recently. HEB, etc will provide you with staples. in answer to your question about a FARMERS MKT...why hasn't anyone responded to that directly? yes, it's certainly not Seattle, but I guess you knew that! Believe me, the CLIMATE might end up bugging you a lot more than the change in food availability. However, go ahead and figure that you'll make it and really be an even better cook than before, why not?!
