Troop 487 International Foods Tasting Tour

Posted on


Henrietta, NY has so many international food sellers, our troop decided to do a local tasting tour. Our 1st stop was at Wegmans on Calkins Rd, where they have a fantastic choice of foods from around the world. We plated up a sampling from the buffet (Indian, Asian, Italian, various cheeses, fruits & vegetables, desserts…) that many of the girls had never tried (or heard of!) From there we headed to Lori’s Natural Foods where they gave us a tour & explanation of their organic and natural products. We were heading next to the Asian Food Market on Brighton-Henrietta Town Line Rd, but arrived just as they were closing. Our last stop was at the International Food  Market on Jefferson Rd across from Southtown Plaza. After exploring the aisles, we each purchased something that interested us…a dessert, beverage, tea, trinket… It was great to get the girls to try something new and to talk about other foods & cultures that are here in our neighborhood.
