Big Black Dog: Market Day

March 29, 2008

Market Day

I love grocery shopping and look forward to it once a week or twice a week or whatever I need to go! But I did not always enjoy grocery shopping until one day when my husband came home from work and said he had stopped by a new grocery store. He kept talking about how nice it was and how reasonable the prices were. Well, it was a month or 2 before I decided to give it a try.

OH MY...the first time I walked through the door of Valli Produce I was absolutely floored at the wonderful fruit and produce. But this store get extremely busy and I would avoid Saturdays...it's like rock'em sock'em bumper cars in there...not fun at all!

This is a shot as you enter the produce section. Don't you love the murals on the walls!

I call this the "weird vegetable aisle". I'm still not familiar with some of the items.

Fruit...fruit...fruit and more fruit! Did I mention they had a nice selection of fruit? Notice the 20 and 40 lb bags of rice and flour displayed on the shelf under the fruit bins. And they do stock Ceresota in 20 lb bags....love it.

And my one of my favorites...ONION KNOBS!!! Oh my are they good!

Every time I'm at the store I spend at least 10 minutes in the Olive Oil aisle. It's absolutely mesmerizing and I seem to get lost. So lost that I forgot to take a picture of the vinegar and cheese aisles and the deli!

Hope you enjoyed the tour of my market!!

OMG! that is a wonderful store. I would think I had died and gone to heaven if I had a place like that to shop. You should see the little store I have to do my grocery shopping in, so pathetic! I go to the city at least once a month to get things that aren't available here, but even those stores are nothing compared to yours.
