Largest U.S. kosher supermarket opens in Pikesville

7 mileYes, in Pikesville. What, you were expecting Ruxton?

The largest U.S. kosher supermarket? Appears to be so. 

Here is Laura Vozzella's Maryland section story. She gets a great closing quote from a satisfied first-day shopper, who spoke admiringly of the new store's produce section, before concluding:

"But they're not giving me anything for nothing."

I am confused by the red wagon things. Why does she have so many carts? Kosher Caravan...

Original Headline:
Largest Jewish Suburb Found in Maryland

Day off tomorrow ... time for a road trip! And Pikesville is close enough to Catonsville to hit up one of the Korean markets on the way around.

Those red wagon things look great. I can't remember how many times I've only needed a basket for my stuff but then it got ridiculously heavy.

I got some amazing apple-wood smoked bacon and Chincoteague oysters there for Sunday brunch after Mass. It's St James of Compostella day on Sunday! Woohoo. Get out your Tabasco and berets!

Oysters?? I would have thought scallops for St. James.


Made it to Seven Mile this afternoon. Scored some great veal bones for stock, nice corned beef (though not "veal roll" ... the lady at the counter told me, "No, you're too late.") I bought no dairy, and segregated meat and "pareve" in my cart. I really, truly, hope I didn't offend anyone there. Or maybe the looks I got had to do with the Episcopal Church seal embroidered on my vest. Oops!

There are times that people think I'm Jewish. When I go to Seven Mile, however, there is no doubt that I'm the Goy in the midst.

I can't get behind any religion that forbids cheeseburgers

I went there but couldn't find any Cheesy Blasters.

RoCK, does that make you the goy in the soy?
