Grocery shopping is one of those tasks filled with such mundane necessity that you rush in order to move on to something bigger and better. But, shopping at Jungle Jim’s International Market near Cincinnati, OH is not your typical grocery buying experience. It is the bigger and better main attraction.
It’s a bit like falling down the rabbit hole as you encounter a grocery store unlike any other. In this culinary wonderland quirky, kitschy characters wait at every corner, making this just as much an amusement park and tourist attraction as a market. But, that doesn’t mean they have skimped on the grocery side of the business. You will encounter aisle upon aisle of every imaginable type of food, in every brand, from every country. If you can’t find it at Jungle Jim’s, it does not exist! Imagine, so many different kinds of rice or Tabasco sauce that they have to be arranged alphabetically on multiple aisles. While you won’t have to watch out for the Queen of Hearts, you will have to avoid the temptation to fill you basket to overflowing with exotic goodies from around the world. Curiouser and curiouser.
