2900 Freeport Blvd.

Sacramento, Ca. 95818






This is a small market, packed full. I would say it is magical and for all boomer foodies. This opened in 1962 by Roy and Ed. In 1998 the market was renovated. There are so many selections of very special items. The meats and produce, the wine selections and the other food surprises are delightful. I always spend an hour at least when I visit. I walk down each isle and see new things every single time!





Great Barrington and Lenoz Mass.





This is a prime market that has two locations. I have shopped at both many times. A lot of people have second homes here that live in Manhattan and want the very best! Two brothers, Chis and Matt took their experience in the culinary arts to create this high end store. If you are a chef you can find anything you will need to create a successful dining experience for your guests.



Dean & Deluca


Soho Manhattan

800. 221.7714




I was lucky to live in Soho and walked down the street to food shop here often. Sometimes I would pop in to sip a delicious coffee or pastry. They have a fabulous kitchen selection in the back of the store and that was always an area I had to check out. This is the place to go for unusual fresh flowers and top quality take-out food for an elegant dinner ( if you do not have time to prepare yourself).



The Fresh Market


Aventura, Florida





This was a regular shopping place for me when I was in Florida.

The Fresh Market has been around for 30 years. You can find them all around the country and you can find whatever your heart desires! I love their pastries loved their sandwiches and prepared food (broccoli slaw and rotisserie chicken salad) and their brand items are the best.
