Have you shopped at EAT FRESH in PARKSVILLE? If not, you must give it a try. Eat Fresh are in the midst of an expansion which is enhancing their deli section. Check out the selection of cheese. Quite expansive.
The meat department is excellent with lots of choices. They have some modest sized packed chicken, beef and pork which are perfect for two. And you must try some of the in house made frozen soups. My brother recommended the FOREST MUSHROOM which is simply delicious with a variety of different mushrooms. $6 each which makes a perfect lunch for two. Just today we slurped up the SEAFOOD CHOWDER! Really delicious. They also have Chilli, Lasagne, and many other frozen items. All made right there.
The Deli/Bakery Department is not to be missed. Want a quick lunch? Try the ready made sandwiches. The Roast Beef & the Corned Beef are very good. The Lime Tarts are one of our favourites and you just must try the Expresso Nanaimo Bar! And check out the muffins too. Like meat pies? Try theirs. And if you fancy a Salad there is an assortment of really interesting creations.
We like Creekmore’s Coffee and you can grind it and buy it right here. Saves one a trip to Hilliers.
We don’t do all our food shopping at Eat Fresh, but seem to be there more and more.
