Marketside & a Caesar at Walmart

Walmart continues to add new products to its fresh foods Private Brand Marketside, this time the line expands with some really nice organic bagged salads that bring the best of national brands and add value with larger pack size added tomatoes, bacon bits or croutons. Marketside is a welcome addition to the sea of Great Value, I would love to see it extend into natural and organic cheeses, milk, yogurt and ice cream.
