Bristol Farms Offers One of the Best Grocery Shopping Experiences in LA
Bristol Farms Makes Me Swoon
New Woodland Hills Location is Awesome!
This is a sponsored post. I received a Bristol Farms Gift Card before the posting of this article.
The Bristol Farms store in Woodland Hills has only been open for a few months and already seems to be a preferred grocery shopping destination for San Fernando Valley residents.
Upon walking in the store, I was greeted by a wide selection of fresh flowers ranging from hydrangeas and sunflowers to rose bouquets and orchids. Next to the flowers, a Gelato stand offering $3 scoops of creamy cold dessert was another big reason to smile. (The Woodland Hills store is the only one with a Gelato department).
Then I walked to the Beer & Wine section which had an incredible variety of reds, whites and everything in between...and before I could process the awesome selection of libations, I looked up and found an end shelf display of Sugarfina desserts across the way. At that point, I hadn't even begun shopping for the things I was there to buy but I knew I was in for a treat!
According to the company's corporate profile, Bristol Farms was named after a street in West LA, and the word “Farms” was added "to emphasize freshness, homemade quality and a warm glow of simple pleasures." The first Bristol Farms store opened in 1982 in Rolling Hills and has since expanded to a dozen other LA-area stores.
Bristol Farms offers quality groceries. They have a deli, a ready-to-eat food section with fresh salads, entrees and pastas. The produce is top-notch, often organic and locally sourced and the meat department is very impressive.
The meat department has several butchers preparing customer orders. I had the opportunity to speak with one of them, a friendly guy named Javier who's worked for Bristol Farms for 16 years. He walked me through the process of ordering the perfect steak. Bristol Farms currently has a steak sale going through March 21 where customers can enjoy 30% off choice, prime and dry aged steaks available as:
- Choice & Prime Ribeye’s
- Choice Porterhouse
- T-Bones & New York Steaks
- Prime New York Steaks
- Choice & Prime Dry Aged New York Steaks
- Choice Top Sirloin Steaks
Here's the best part of the whole experience, I bought steak, side dishes, wine, dessert, fruit, fresh flowers and even party decorations and kept the total under $100. Now I'm off to make a birthday lunch for my son Toby who's turning two. Stay tuned to see what I whip up in my kitchen!
