7 Incredible Supermarkets In Colorado You’ve Probably Never Heard Of But Need To Visit
If you are like me, you dread your trips to the grocery store… but what if I told you that grocery shopping didn’t have to be the low point of your week? Believe it or not, not all grocery stores are big box and super crowded, including these 7 small, family-owned grocers that you have probably never heard of but need to visit:
1. Woolsey's Food Center (Calhan)
While Colorado Springs may be a short drive away from the small town of Calhan, residents continue to choose Woolsey's, which has been family-owned and operated since 1972. What's to love about this small town grocer? For starters, Woolsey's serves not only serves fresh meats and produce, but also hot pizza and cold sandwiches made in-store every day!
2. Mountain Food Market (Grand Lake)
Small town mountain grocers are notorious for being over-priced and understocked, which is far from the case at Mountain Food! The next time you are in town, stop in for a wide variety of essential groceries, fishing gear, and Grand Lake souvenirs.
3. Carol's Oriental Food & Gifts (Grand Junction)
Located in Grand Junction, Carol's Oriental Food & Gifts is just that: a charming little shop that sells not only hard-to-find Asian-inspired foods, but also stunning housewares, decor, and gifts.
4. Edwards Right Price Market (Fort Morgan)
Question: Is there anything better than a fourth-generation grocer?
Answer: Yes; a fourth-generation grocer that not only sells both fresh and organic foods, but also seasonal specials (chocolate-dipped strawberries, anyone?) AND a fragrant assortment of flowers.
5. Franks Food Mart (Denver)
Please note, Franks Food Mart is no longer in business.
Do you need a little dinner inspiration? Look no further than this Denver Skyland institution, which has been serving the community for more than 65 years and sells fresh and ready-to-cook meals like these mashed potatoes & gravy and Sockeye salmon with fettuccine.
6. Clark's Market (Telluride)
For a grocer as charming as the town itself, visit Clark's Market, which serves not only Tellride, but also Aspen, Crested Butte, and Norwood!
7. Mollica's Italian Market (Colorado Springs)
For the best Italian market and freshly made sandwiches, salads, and traditional entrees outside of -- well, Italy, check out the authentic goodness found at this family owned shop. (Want a recommendation? Order a delicious family-sized order of their Manicott!)
