Robert Fresh Market: Let's Go Grocery Shopping!

  Peek inside my basket! 

Hey Everybody! It's the day before Thanksgiving! Since I'm busy in the kitchen cooking for the next two days, I thought I would give you a little peek of where I grocery shop. It's called Robert (pronounced "row-bear") and it's near my home.

Robert Fresh Market is small, but it's packed with LOTS of really tasty and unique things! They have freshly cut flowers, daily baked french bread, delectable crawfish pasta, hot beignets, tempting muffalettas, imported wine, specialty ice cream and a wonderful selection of fine cut meats & seafood. If I have BIG grocery shopping to do, I usually shop somewhere else. However, I love the charm of Robert. They have the best stuff! Hope you enjoy!

A Little Lagniappe - I'm taking tomorrow off from blogging (Thanksgiving Holiday)! But I'll be back with a yummy new post Friday! 

Did you guys spot the Zapps New Orleans VOODOO Potato Chips? HaHaHa They have voo doo dolls on the bags! Our ice cubes, from Pelican Ice (our state bird) even have New Orleans Saints (for my international readers, that's our local football team) printed on the bags! As you can see from my car seat, I love freshly baked bread. HaHaHa

Have a great Wednesday and tell me what kind of grocery stores YOU like to shop at! BIG or small?


  1. I have a confession. As much as I LOVE shopping, grocery shopping is my least favorite. I don't know why, it just stresses me out! Ha.

    Hope you have a very happy thanksgiving!

  2. I kept looking at prices... So much cheaper to shop in the States than here... :(

    I LOVE grocery shopping, too, and can spend a lot of time in a supermarket, however I do buy my general groceries on-line and then stop by the shops for special bits and pieces.

    Have a lovely day tomorrow!


  3. This place looks wonderful...I will be going there when I visit you ;) I love fresh food and walking down the isles finding fun things to eat :)) My dear girl, I hope you have a wonderful and festive time!! happy Thanksgiving to you...enjoy it & have a great day :))) I am thankful to know a gal like you, it's truly a blessing to me :)) I shall say a little prayer of thanks tomorrow as everyone is America gives thanks!! Have fun doll :))) xoxox

  4. What a fancy little grocery store! There's no little stores around here like that so I go food shopping in a huge Stop & Shop. They have great deals though.

    Have a wonderful Thanksgiving, Kim!

  5. I prefer the smaller shops...easier to get around and less temptation to buy rubbish! Have a fabulous day tomorrow Kim:)

  6. This looks like a grocery store that would actually make food shopping fun and everything looks so fresh. I prefer bigger grocery store cause I'm all about one stop shopping haha. Have a wonderful and delicious Thanksgiving Kim!

  7. Now all I want are peaches and chocolate chip cookies, lol.

  8. i love fresh warm bread, too! while i love the selections at big stores, i also like to visit the health food stores once in a while. they have all kinds of interesting products and different brands to try.


  9. I LOVE this post! Perhaps my favorite on your blog! I love grocery shopping. I do WAY too much impulse shopping in the grocery store. I love selecting produce and fresh breads!

    Oh and thanks so much for the comment on Stephan's style post! I'm glad you liked the pictures because I am featuring him again sometime!


  10. I love shops like this where you can often find unusual brands. The fresh produce looks wonderful - I would definitely enjoy shopping here. It's far more relaxed than a supermarket. Have a lovely Thanksgiving, Kim.

  11. Hi Kim, You're making me really hungry and I just had lunch. Haha! I love grocery shopping. I love shopping at the Real Canadian Superstore. It has everything. I love the one stop shopping. Enjoy your day and Happy Thanksgiving!

  12. Ohhh I would like to shop there, everything looks so fresh and yum!Wishing you a very happy Thanksgiving!

  13. This looks a lot like the Trader Joe's we have locally!

  14. I love grocery places like that! I can probably be there for hours:p Happy Thanksgiving!

  15. Such great grocery photos! LOVE all the fresh produce. I've been doing tons of shopping at grocery stores lately Kim, since I'm trying to eat healthier so my trips happen more often. Some are Stop & Shop, Trade Fair and Trader Joe's. :)

    Have a great Thanksgiving Holiday and enjoy all the treats. HUGS!


  16. YUMMY!!! I like to shop cheap...honestly do more at Target than anywhere. But my real fav is Trader Joe's.

  17. Love the way everything is laid out, what a pretty grocery store! :)

    Have a very happy thanksgiving Kim :)

  18. I shop whoever is close to home lol Currently I shop at either Save way, Super Store or Pricesmart - depending on how big or small the shop needs to be!

  19. I need to go for a grocery shopping because we used to cook a lot on Thanks Giving Day. I hope you had best shopping over there. Happy Thanks Giving.

  20. This is a great post, Kim! And that little grocery story looks lovely!
    It might sound weird but one of the things I like doing when travelling to new countries is visiting local supermarkets and browse the different foods you can find there hehehe
    I love the picture of the black corn, that's something we don't have in Europe and I would love to try sometime. The pumpkins also look delicious :)
    Very happy Thanksgiving!

  22. We don't have those stores where I live so it's nice to take a little trip through the aisles with you! I love the picture where the Doritos are next to the wine LOL!! Happy Thanksgiving and can't wait to see what you're having!

  23. Cute shop !



  24. Your store seems to be stocked with a lot of great items. I'll be cooking for thanksgiving as well but I do most of my shopping at Ralphs, Food 4 Less (both Kroger owned) and Fresh n Easy. Have a great Thanksgiving!!

  25. Have a great thanksgiving Kim, you deserve it, I hope you will post some of those beautiful recipes you are preparing, that supermarket looks fantastic and the flowers are stunning.
    I wanted to say thanks a lot for your comment on the movie review, I was a bit blue and you make my day.
    Spend best thanksgiving ever, kisses

  26. Happy thanksgiving Kim! Thank you for being such a sweet blogger friemd *hugz*

    I love grocery shopping even if I'm not buying anything. I really love how you all have such huge grocery stores in the States.

  27. I really love going to markets like this, my parents always went to fresh markets early morning growing up. Although I don't particularly enjoy going to the grocer, I do love going to markets like this. Enjoy your Thanksgiving time! xx

  28. Kim you have great taste even when it comes to grocery shopping! I enjoyed the display of fresh food! And I'd love the woodoo potatoes, I have a crush on stories/movies set in New Orleans and everything related to it. I wish you a Happy Thanksgiving and I am thankful for your friendship.Kisses Coco

  29. Happy Thanks giving. Miss thanks giving. Can I taste some of your cooking. Lol.

  30. Happy Thanksgiving darling! Ooo..Looks like you had a big sweep at the grocery store =D The ham looks good!!
    For me, I don't cook so I'm not the one who does the grocery shopping. My bf aka personal chef, does the shopping and he always complain about how frustrating it is to get everything in 1 grocery store here. He got to run like 2-3 places to complete his list and he said unlike back home where he can do 1 round and that's it...blah blah blah...

  31. Kim you are making me really hungry with this post!! It all looks so yummy, and of course, you know I love the flowers :-)
