Grocery shopping ranks high at the top of my personal list of “Things About Being an Adult That Are Decidedly Not Fun.” Everything about this weekly chore feels like pure drudgery: the meal planning, the making of the grocery list, the shopping itself, the lugging of the bags back into the house, and unpacking it all. It’s a necessity of life, but one that brings me little to no joy.
So you can imagine my delight, my unmitigated glee, when word began to spread around Saratoga about Chef Adam Foti’s new brick and mortar grocery store, PDT Market. As each sneak peek was posted to the store’s Instagram account, community interest and anticipation mounted. Was that a floral mural on the wall? Is that a glass case of tempting baked goods? Excuse me, but…could that be…a bar?
