Glen Ellen Village Market

One of my favorite things to do during my travels is to visit local grocery stores.  While Whole Foods® makes it easy for a lot of us to experience exotic and eclectic food stuffs in our own backyard, it’s still nice to support the locals.  Up in Sonoma, California, they have Sonoma Market and the Glen Ellen Village Market.

They also have a great variety of cooked food to go.  My favorites are their crab cakes and zucchini cakes,
