buying catfood on a friday night I suppose the thing we like about Marketime is the way they crowd the shelves just like a corner grocery in New York City. Rumor has it that they have the widest selection of ANY supermarket ANYwhere although the store is only a quarter of the size of the Stone Way Safeway just five blocks away. Maybe it's because they're not selling their shelfspace; you don't see three tons of the same brand of cat litter or a Warholian assemblage of Campbell's Soup. They have a whole aisle of wine and the price for bananas changes every day. I asked the cashier if that were her baby. "Oh my God no," she said, which seemed to me a sensible answer.
