The most amazing grocery store I have ever had the pleasure to shop in, is right here in Healdsburg. Big John's Market, right off Hwy 101 on Dry Creek Road, is so amazing that we are all planning on making it our last stop out of town so we can stock up on all the unique foods!
What makes Big John's so special is that not only does it have everything a *normal* grocery store would, it has a wealth of never-before-seen imported and locally produced artisan foods.
These mini burgers are neither - but I had to try some!!!
I will likely never have a need to buy Italian cookies, but if I do, I know where to come for a good selection!
We made pesto pasta the first night (not from scratch - I'm on vacation!) and I was floored to read this label, boasting a residential address just blocks from my moms house! Who knew there were people manufacturing food in their apartment kitchens!
I don't know why anyone thinks we need to burn fossil fuel, importing butter from Italy... what's wrong with the butter we got here? But interesting nonetheless.
I picked up some of these simple syrups for coffee, Mojitos and special kids drinks.
Beautiful chicken label.
I needed some hot fudge for a mud pie I made and Big John's selection was huge! Of course I reached for the most exotic bottle, seeing as I'm easily romanced by labels. As I held this one up to snap a photo, a woman walked by and said, "That is the best hot fudge!" So into my basket it went.
Just too darn cute not to photograph!
