Yesterday I got to attend a tour of the new Harmons grocery store in Farmington. Yup, that’s Bob and Randy! Now, this is not just any grocery store, this is a state of the art grocery store! Let me tell you some of the things you will find at Harmons.
We waited upstairs in the Mezzanine for our tour to start. These are some of the other bloggers. On the left is Frieda from Frieda Loves Bread.
I brought my sweet hubby with me. We waited on a leather couch in front of the fireplace. There is also several areas with tables in chairs for eating. You can look out over the valley in one direction and into the store in the other.
This is the coffee bar. They have a large selection of robust coffee’s to choose from.
They also have a large selection of gelato’s! They let us taste any that we wanted. I know, I could of stood there all morning! My favorite was a toss up between Pistachio and Caramel~yum!
This is the deli and cheese area. This employee was telling us all about the specialty cheeses that they sell at Harmons. Of course she also gave us samples.
I don’t remember all the different options they have at the deli for sandwiches, but they do make a veggie sandwich that’s sounds wonderful with roasted veggie’s.
This is another part of the deli where they have fresh pizza and other yummy things. We got to taste a breakfast pizza on a whole wheat crust. The crust was amazing!
I was chatting with some of the other bloggers at this point of the tour, but I remember lasagna and roasted chicken as some of the options along with the pizza, but there are more.
This is one of the kitchens and all the workers dress in white like chefs.
This is Bob telling us about their fruit bowls. They only use the freshest fruit in them, so you will never see juices collecting in the bottom. Bob told us that things are only fresh once!
This is the bread counter where they make Artisan Breads. The man in white is the bread chef. He let us taste the white chocolate macadamia nut bread and the roasted garlic bread. The roasted garlic bread has whole garlic cloves baked right in the bread. They were both so good!
These loaves look kind of dark, but that is just the sugar caramelizing on the top. Mmmm….
Can you tell this was one of my favorite sections!
Then we went on to the bakery!
We had the opportunity to sample some of these after our lunch.
Next we went to the Seafood Counter where we were told about the different kinds of salmon and other seafood's that Harmons sells. All of their seafood is flown in fresh every morning.
Of course we got to taste some!
Harmons has a great selection of sausages that they make.
Harmons also has wonderful fruits and vegetables that are delivered fresh daily. They only stack their fruits and vegetables two high so that they don’t get bruised.
Here are some of the things that we got to choose from at our lunch. It was served in the Culinary Arts School Kitchen back up on the Mezzanine.
I only took one picture of the kitchen. This is just one of the stoves.
We had shrimp, salmon sausages, flank steak, dirty rice and a quinoa salad.
And of course desserts!
