San Diego Area - WOW - Jimbo's

I'm happy at last after finding Jimbo's. IMO, it's better than Whole Foods, but I haven't been to the local Whole Foods. The Escondido Jimbo's is near me. I hear the Del Mar Jimbo's is HUGE and even better.

At any rate, there were eight varietes of apples, all with names, not just "red" and "yellow'.

Great looking deli. There's a special every day like Jerk Roasted Turkey served with Organic Vegetables, Organic Mashed Potatoes and Gravy

Fancy sausages, my first spotting of a chicken apple sausage. I saw my first Rocky chicken in a long time and almost wept.

There were boxes of Julian pies (although they were recently trashed on the board). There was a nice cheese selection with many of them organic and a huge selection of organic wines.

They are opening a third store in Carlsbad soon.

Henry's and Boney's just weren't doing it for me. Love that Jimbo.
