I finally went to Mariano's over the weekend. The best way for me to describe the store is that it's like a huge local fresh market. I think they explain their philosophy best though. "Mariano’s is unlike any other store. See for yourself how we bring you the freshest high-quality foods from just about everywhere in the it kosher bagels from down the street, or mozzarella from Caserta, Italy. And we created a neighborhood shopping environment filled with amenities like an Italian coffee shop serving authentic gelato, a wood-fired pizza oven, and sit down sushi bar; not to mention a full-service pharmacy. All at prices so compelling, that our Shop well. Eat well. Live well.philosophy can become yours too."

We found some great organic vegetables, and we want to go back for the pizza and gelato some day, but I was anxious to check out the Italian Flower Market.  They exhibited at the Chicago Flower and Garden Show and have been on my "places to go" list ever since.  Well, this is just a small section of that department and I loved it.  What do you think?  I would have loved to spend more time there just absorbing all the beauty!

Just living is not enough. One must have sunshine, freedom, and a little flower.  Hans Christian Andersen
