Usually try to stop by this market when passing through. They have great selection. My only gripe is that they start closing down the deli-hot food-wings bar and salad bar before 7pm. It's not out of the ordinary to eat dinner after 7:00 - it would be nice to be able to pick up a burger and fries. Please start
operating in the year 2013! Other than this - great store, staff super friendly.

Great little snack ideas, and the food at the deli was outstanding for the picnic we had at Firestone Winery with friends. We will be back

Perfect market in a world of chain grocers in dismal developments. I really only shop here. You should too. It's worth the drive no matter where you live in the Valley.

I actually believe this market to be in Santa Ynez. I saw 5 chiefs cooking in the morning for that days fresh fare. A bbq outside the size of a small bulldozer lets you know they are serious about food inside. The deli counter just doesn’t stop, from salads to fresh baked bread to great sandwiches and so much more. They can pack you a fantastic picnic lunch or cater your party of 60 friends no problem. The meat counter is extensive with a kind face ready for your order. Walking thru every isle in the store you can see products than you never see elsewhere. They just don’t carry your favorite hard to find brands, they carry every item that brand makes, which is a delight when you’re a serious cook. I was just having a weekend getaway with my wife and stopped in by accident. I can wait to go back to pick up supplies and unique groceries for my kitchen back home.

Fantastically well stocked supermarket with very little crap (ie additive-packed) food, instead lots of fresh home made food. Fantastic salad bar and home made pies.
