i was upstate again....a pass time for the city folk in the summer.....there are some beautiful areas in New York state that have nothing to do with NYC and should be experienced... one such experience is man made... and for a food person is the grocery... i was at wegmans ... ( the wholly grail of upstate food shopping ) and the things i saw...oh my...... first off the store goes on and on and on and on ... as wide and deep as a city block... and the products......oh my... the deli section is as large as some of the entire stores i shop in at home ... i was amazed not only do they have products i have never seen before and selection that is overwhelming but they sell things like suitcases and patio furniture ... and just a hint for those people who are not experienced at grocery shopping upstate ( it is a skill) ....when you arrive you select a meeting point ..... near the lottery machines or the " grab and go case" but never the bakery... that can be dangerous if you have to wait to long..... you will have muffins , bagels, breads, pizzas, cakes, pies, cookies, pastries .. oh my ... you get the point....all this so you do not have to be one of "those people" who have to get customer service to announce that you have lost a member of your group...... and can they come to the front of the store ( first time shoppers..... how embarrassing ) ....

  1. Hi Marie
    We have a Wegmans down here in South Jersey.
    It's a 1/2 drive away...thank God!
    My first time in I had a hunded dollar gift certificate. That dissapeared before I was halfway thru the deli...Even the flower department was phenomenal. ...and the breads mmmmmm, suddenly I'm really hungry!
    I like your blog!
