While I was there, I browsed around. It's got a lot of organic foods, a little like Trader Joe's but they also carry regular store brands as well. And while I was browsing, I found something I have been looking for for years: the ever-elusive "crackbread"! For those who don't know, "crackbread" is what I call this bread that I used to get from Lilla and her mom, that makes the best damn toast in the whole universe. It got its name because it was so good I had 6 slices or more the first time I had any, it was so good. (And is best with real butter.) I've been trying for a year or two to find it, without luck, because I didn't know what kind of bread it was. Some breads, like French or Italian made and sliced in certain ways, came close, but none were what I sought. But I have found it at last: it is como bread! (And as much as I hate his music, calling it "Perry Como bread" will help me remember. *Starts chanting "Perry Como is high on crackbread"*) I wasn't sure until just now, when I toasted some up, and now I'm sure.
They also have lingonberry preserves, so now I have a place to get those other than Ikea; a place that takes food stamps. :-) So I have lost one reason to go to New Seasons Market, and gained two. (Well, unless I can find como bread somewhere else.)
I also got a couple lemon empanadas, to try them. It's some kind of pastry.
