Wegmans!

I couldn't wait to post on the best grocery store ever made so I moved it to today's post. It really is worth the field trip if you are ever in a northern atlantic state. The closest thing we have in Georgia is Whole Foods. Although I do love whole foods, but its way more expensive to shop there than Wegmans.
 We went to the Pittsford Wegmans, the mecca of all Wegmans. This is the largest one in Rochester, it has the biggest Market Cafe area with 2nd floor seating!  I'm getting excited just typing about it again.
Check out the view when you walk in. Just look at all that fresh produce! Sorry about all the people, but when its the best place on earth, its going to be crowded.
I love the flower section. There are so many wonderfully beautiful things to choose from.
Did someone say candy? I always tell people about the bulk candy section. We don't have anything like it here. You can go get a handful or a huge bag full and weigh it yourself and off you go.
Here is another view. There is walls and walls of candy! I took these for Leah. She loves candy and I've been telling her about this for a while now.
Here is their fancy do-it-yourself candy pricer. You weigh your bag, type in your number on the candy bin, and it prints you out a label with the price to bring to the register. So great and high-tech.
This is the market cafe. You can sit down and they'll cook you food, go to the sushi bar, Mediterranean bar, pizza shop, or get fresh seafood. They have anything you could imagine, you could eat here every night and never have the same thing.
Olive bar
They will even make you a burrito! I was excited, but this is a Pittsford only Wegmans thing.
Look at all this delicious food.
The desserts were incredible. Not only do they have a full bakery with fresh bagels, donuts, rolls, muffins, but they have these gourmet desserts.
We ended up going with the traditional, but oh so fantastic submarine sandwich. It was amazing.
In case you wanted another view, here is my sub with my wheat roll. Sorry about the oil shot, but you gotta have it. They bottle their own submarine oil (which is like a dressing) and you can buy it. Well that about sums up Wegmans. It really is the best grocery store ever made. Danny makes great stuff (Danny Wegman is the CEO). Fun facts- Wegmans headquarters are in Rochester, NY. It has been voted top 100 Best Companies to Work For since its inception in 1998, and has ranked among the top 10 for eight consecutive years. Food Network recognized it with its award for Best Grocery Store in 2007,and Consumer Reports ranked it the top large grocery chain in the United States in 2009. Pin It
