so we can take a look at a grocery store. This store is open 24 hours so I can shop at any time. I think it’s only closed one day in the year. So, here we go. Let’s take a look at a grocery store.

Americans usually shop at large supermarkets where they can buy groceries, household goods, clothing, sports equipment, car supplies, pet supplies, medicine, and much more. Small specialty shops exist but large supermarkets seem to be more popular. Farmers markets are very popular in the summertime. Most grocery stores have the produce section near the entrance of the store. In this video, we will look at some of the items in the produce section.

Okay, here’s my grocery cart. Let’s see. What do I need? The grocery store starts with the produce section, so here are some melons, different kinds of melons, honeydew. There’s cantaloupe. Let’s see if I can find some peaches. Mmm apple cider. I’m going to get some apple cider although it’s not in season. I don’t know. It says fresh cider. I’ll go ahead and get some cider. There’s apple cider. We take a plastic bag. We put our fruit and vegetables in. I’ll get a couple of nectarines. If I can reach. Okay, there’s one and I’ll get one more. Which one is a good one?

These are 4-49, four dollars and forty-nine cents, and the seedless are also four dollars and forty-nine cents, but I’m not going to get one. What else? Some pineapple, some kiwi, some bananas. Usually this whole section is filled with bananas, but as I said it’s 9:30 at night. It’s about maybe 9:45 now, so they haven’t restocked yet. They restock everything at night.
