The food in those super stores where you squeak squeak the shopping cart up and down the aisles with clarinet muzak in the background. The overloaded wire wheeled cart to over flowing gets hernia level painful as you maneuver to the check out. But the just in time trailer truck delivery from outside markets where the food is grown, originates means a conveyor belt is turning morning, noon and night.
