Our favorite grocery store, La Familia is located 10 minutes from us on the other side of the mountain. When we first stepped through the doors ways, our mouths dropped and we both said “Wow!” Now I’ve been to a Whole Foods grocery store and have always been impressed with their beautifully designed cafe, deli with amazing salad bar, fine meats and vegetables but their prices were just too expensive even though we had the palette for their tastes….But, when we sought out every isle, picked out our deli’s, rotisserie and sweets we found our version of Whole Foods, just a lot smaller and more colourful! The packaging and products more beautiful, I mean have you seen the tupper-wears? How cute are those?
Another jaw dropping moment was the baby isle because indoctrination class taught us that Horse wasn’t just a delicacy here but a staple in most homes. So yes, the babies are fed Horse amongst other animals we don’t dare touch in America. Makes me feel even worse for eating a cow as rarely as I do, but a Horse? Oh no! A little furry rabbit? Oh no! Anyways, aside from all that…. the vibrant hues just continue their ways throughout the store and it just makes grocery shopping here in Sicily much more fun than in the USA!
I have a slide show below to prove it…!
