I am in love….

… with my grocery store!! Ah yes. I simply love Moore Wilson’s!!

I’ll not deny that I sometimes go there after dropping off N at school just to browse all that gorgeous produce! Seriously I do. Because it’s all so beautiful 🙂

The Fresh store has these beautifully displayed, clearly marked veggies and fruits, some lovely and a bit expensive organic produce. Freshly baked bread of a 100 varieties, ok well lots of them.  Pastries, scones, cupcakes – my favourite is a white chocolate vanilla cupcake, truffles, cheese. Fresh flowers. They have small recipe cards displayed throughout the store with recipes that can be made with the veggies. They even make fresh orange juice every morning to sell and freshly ground coffee too!

They keep putting out these Market Reports with interesting information. Like this week there were 2 articles saying “Why kids need bananas?” and “Are you achieving the 5+ a day goal? Don’t forget to mix the colours.” Very informative and fun!!

I like walking through those comfortably spaced aisles of exotic ingredients, quick and easy check out desks and even my Moore Wilson’s card 🙂

They have 3 segments –

1. Fresh – with veggies, fruits, meats, seafood, exotic stuff and bakery stuff.  They work directly with growers/producers.

2. Variety store – small appliances, kitchen ware, cookware, crockery, glassware, cutlery, plasticware, brushware, luggage, and a wonderful range of toys. They also have products in bulk for restaurants and trade so Masterchef New Zealand contestants come here to shop for their contests. Yeah!

3. Wine, liquor and other spirits.

Its been a great shopping experience – the store literally appeals to all the senses of a shopper 😉 And it has made me look forward to cooking in a new way! Here’s to shopping and cooking 🙂
