European Supermarkets

I often make a point to stop off in a grocery store when traveling.  I started this habit when I was in Portugal in 2010 and have always loved popping in and taking a few minutes to see what is being sold.  In general you see the same things you’ll see in the US, but some areas are dramatically better.

The meat and cheese counters often have a much wider selection than you can get back home.

Various cheese as far as the eye can see!

Delicious meats – don’t they just look better than we have here in the US?

Look at the variety!

Another wonderful area to scope out – the prepared food area.  A little grab and go section is often right up front in these small markets in large European cities.  Here you can find quick ready-to-eat meals for busy city-dwellers. This isn’t fast food, it’s so much better.

Packaged tapas for a quick dinner or snack.

Do you have any strange traditions while you travel?  Do you love foreign grocery stores or markets as much as I do?
