Tampa Fresh Foods

My friend Lauren didn’t stop with her fantastic fiber arts tour of Tampa with Stash. Oh no. She also took me to see the TikTok-famous, as-seen-on-TV Tampa Fresh Foods!

This art installation was made by British artist Lucy Sparrow and her team. It’s a whole grocery store handmade entirely with felt. It’s so wild. I loved everything from the adorable faces on the produce to the level of detail on the commercial items.

This also gave me a great laugh. It truly is a complete grocery store.

Lauren, who has a peanut allergy, got to hold a harmless jar of peanut butter for the first time in her life.

We heard that Lucy would be around in the shop, but to our surprise we found her behind the cash register. She took this photo with us after she rang us up.

None of us could leave without one of these mussels. They were just too cute. We could feel extra good about it, because in addition to supporting an artist, proceeds went to Feeding Tampa Bay.

Loved, loved, loved this installation. I don’t know for how long it will be up, but if you can go, you should! Do be prepared to wait in line to get it!
