Browsing the Aisles at City Market

New Sagaya’s City Market is a dangerous place.  I could lose hours browsing the aisles.  Even if I’ve been up and down each one ten times already, there’s always something new I haven’t seen before.

The other day, I found two tiny black truffles in a jar, snuggled up against another jar of white truffle cream. I wanted to buy them, just to see what a real (albeit jarred) truffle tastes like – I love truffle oil, but decided that I needed to have a special occasion and a special recipe before I took the plunge into whole-truffle territory.

Other fascinating things that I haven’t purchased (but am oh so curious about):


See what I mean about it being dangerous though? If I bought, and ate, all of these delectable items, I’d be plenty of dollars lighter and plenty of lbs heavier.

So far I’ve been mostly able to stick to lattes (of course), produce if I need it for dinner that night, the occasional jam cookies for my husband, and my favorite kettle corn (the name of which I can’t remember or I’d be thrilled to share with you). But someday, maybe someday, I’ll buy those two little jarred truffles and see what happens.

Do you love shopping/aisle gazing at City Market too?  What’s your favorite random thing to pick up there?

I love Anchorage. I love what it is, what it's been, and what I dream it will be. I share my adventures with DJ (my husband), my fabulous family and friends, two frenchies named Grover and Teddy, and now, all of you. If you love Anchorage too, get in touch - guest posts are welcome!

    1. It would be so fun wander the aisles of a food store with you! Much like wandering the aisles of fabric stores, full of unexpected surprises and things to fall in love with. My mom and I had such a great time with you that day!
