Although our food shopping habits are truly different and may vary from person to person, the majority agree that the overwhelming crowds of the shops—which we can expect most in the late afternoon and early evening—the queues at the registers and the long minutes of waiting are all factors that make this weekly activity unpleasant and exhausting. It is no coincidence that smaller shops selling gourmet products are becoming more and more popular, where customers can browse premium goods in a calm and exclusive environment. In today’s selection, we present the region’s most special delicatessens!
