Our tour guide (Kroger division president, or something like that) told us that most folks do 80 percent of their shopping at the same store, and I'm just going to admit it: 80 percent of my grocery dollars go to Wal-Mart. But......if I lived a little closer to this monstrous, mega, magnificent Kroger Marketplace, THAT would all change!
Here's some more pics from my new favorite store...that I'll probably never again visit because it's 1,000,000,000,000 miles away from me.
|Kyran trying an interesting pear-ish fruit.|
|This bulk island had everything you could ever want to stock up on: granola, beans, nuts, etc.|
|Being the carb fanatic that I am, THIS is what excited me: made-fresh-daily Artisan breads for $2.99 a loaf!|
|A close-up of these beautiful breads.|
|They also had a HUGE selection of cheeses from around the world, of which we got to sample. This was almost as exciting to me as the breads...|
|The meat selection here will definitely be a draw for a lot of people. Come get your pre-made kabobs, slap 'em on the grill, and supper's done.|
|Not a red meat kind of gal? There's stuffed and wrapped chicken breasts ready for your oven instead.|
|Possibly THE most mesmerizing contraption of all... the grind-your-own peanut butter machines (or almond butter or honey peanut butter). Just push the button and there's freshly ground nuts in your cup... no oils or sweeteners, just nuts, ground up.|
|And finally, here's our group. Names and blogs are listed below.|
