After work, my mom called to invite me to check out the grand opening of a new Mariano’s Fresh Market near my house! I couldn’t say no. I left work early to explore the new store with my mom and brother.
Mariano’s is a close second to TJs, except Mariano’s has the best food court… I am obsessed! You name it, they have it.
Wine bar, sushi station, homemade pizza, fresh squeezed juice stand, gelato shop…the list goes on and on!
At the grand opening, they had fresh-made pretzels in a variety of flavors…one flavor they had was red velvet?! Another interesting flavor was buffalo.
As we were walking through the bakery and sweets area, I saw taffy apples the size of my face and fudge galore. One cool area they had included barrels filled with crazy popcorn flavors…green apple, churro, garlic ranch…but I am a Chicago Mix (caramel/cheese combo) kinda girl.
My mom and I love going to Mariano’s, just to walk around and try the variety of food court options they have to offer. A simple night at a grocery store makes for a memorable time!
Mariano’s has become our “spot” and a shopping day we look forward to . 🙂
