Default Specialty Food Stores

Hi,

How often do you shop at a specialty food store? This would include places like Restaurant Depot, Penzey's and Whole Foods.

I realize that it's a bit vague, but for the purposes of the poll, if you think it's a specialty food store, then so do I.

Thanks!

Eric

Thanks! I appreciate your taking the time to post and participate in the poll. I'm trying to gather data for organizers to include in their sponsor packets when looking for support from potential sponsors.

RD of course and for those hard to find Spanish/Mexican/Latin ingredients, I like Compare (pronounced Com Par' Ay) Markets.

I wouldn't call RD a Specialty Food Store. Whole Foods these days is barely what a Specialty Food Store is. Your local Mexican or Asian markets are specialty food stores. Sprouts might be a specialty food store.

What are Specialty Foods? Specialty food products are foods and beverages that exemplify quality, innovation and style in their category. They are often known for their authenticity, ethnic or cultural origin, commitment to specific processing rules or traditions, superior ingredients, limited supply or extraordinary packaging.

Go to the Korean / Asian store about once a month. Usually have a great produce and seafood selection. They don't sell brisket, butts or many things I use for BBQ, but, have lots of other things.

About once every 4 or 5 years, when I'm near one... Podunk don't have Whole
Foods. We were lucky to get WallyWorld.

Started competing in chili cookoffs back in the 1990's and have competed in more than I care to count. I became a CBJ in MiM in 2005, then MBN and in GBA in 2010. I've probably judged 130+- BBQ comps (sanctioned and unsanctioned) over this time. That said, I really enjoy competing more than I enjoy judging, and hope to get back to doing 4 or 5 a year in the near future.

I would still consider RD a speciality store, in that they have types and quantities of food available that you can't find in mainstream stores. Maybe y'all in Texas can do this, but you will never find a packer cut brisket in a supermarket up here in the frozen north.

It's a regular stop for me.
