Superama is a small supermarket on the road into Queretaro from San Miguel de Allende. We have passed by it many times on our way to WalMart and Costco but not today. Today we stopped. What fun! It is like a mini supermarket with quality goods. Clean, well-lit, lots of helpful employees. A nice vegetable department, fresh fish, good meats in cuts that I "know." (oops....We just had dinner on the terrace. Let me add to the "good meats".....not. Definitely Mexican meat that is "firm" and needs to be braised for a while not cooked on the grill.) Wonderful bakery with some great looking breads. A deli with Mexican cheeses but also a good selection of very nice imported cheeses. We were able to get cases of the "inexpensive" Chilean wine that we like at the same price as we got it at WalMart.

It will definitely be our first stop on the way into Queretaro for grocery shopping and hopefully we can get it all there and not have to go on for another 10 to 15 minutes in the traffic unless we need things like the Costco size packages of paper towels, soap, and toilet paper.

Wish I had taken the camera with me for some shots from the hip. Maybe next time.
