Having received coupons in the mail and being in the area, I tried out the new Fresh and Easy Supermarket at Rengstorff/Middlefield.

Did you know that this is actually a British supermarket? It's owned by Tesco, Britain's biggest food retailer. The feel of the store is really very like being in a British supermarket. Web Link

Fresh and Easy considered moving into Edgewood Market, but will not. The grocery store which will move in will be The Fresh Market: Web Link

Do they only carry English-style foods? Or also ingredients for other cuisines?

I have used this supermarket on several occasions and like the meat and bread in particular.

Is being owned by a British supermarket chain supposed to make any difference? It has a few British items in its international section (very similar to Piazzas) and has all the staples one would expect in an American local market catering to local demographics.

Don't miss out on the discussion!
