I know it may not be the first supermarket of choice for many but I just love Food City. The grocery selection, the produce, the atmosphere, the music! When I am in a mood to cook Mexican it is my first stop for great ingredients. And their fresh limes are MUCH cheaper than anywhere else in town. So check it out! Our closest Food City on the West Side of Tucson is on St. Mary's Road just west of Grande. There is also one on south 6th just north of I-10. It is a good place to get your freshly roasted green chiles in the early fall.
There was a wonderful article in the Tucson Weekly that really captures the flavor (sorry) of the place. Check it out: Food City: A Valentine
