First, the produce section. Among the fruits and vegetables we would see in our local grocery were specialties I'd never spotted before. There were apples that couldn't be mistaken for anything else, but looked completely different from apples I'd ever seen before. Banana leaves?? What are those used for? Eggplants in every color and size. String beans long enough to lasso a calf. I could have spent hours just taking pictures and notes in the produce section, but the produce guy was suspicious of me as it is.

|Datu Puti (what??) Next to Bottled Lye Water|
|Hello Kitty Roasted Seasoned Seaweed Bar|
A seaweed brownie.
Really? People eat this stuff willingly? Without the threat of death if they don't??
And then, a fruit I thought I'd never see in person. One that dominates extreme eating food shows.
And slightly less disturbing:
And fnally, we discovered the Department of Fish.
Which provided half an hour of camera fun for me, a diehard Sopranos fan.
But as impressed as I was, it still isn't a Wegman's.
