Stew Leonard's is unlike any supermarket I've ever encountered. It's set up rather like a maze - instead of aisles, you start at one end and zig zag through (there are breaks every now and then so you can escape if you need to).
But you won't want to leave, once you look up. Animatronic farm animals and figures greet you along the way, along with the Chiquita banana lady and an egg-laying chicken! Something to keep the kids (and adults) amused as they do their shopping. Also, Stew's is famous (infamous? for all those watching their weight) for their samples - you can literally have a meal as you walk along and taste.
Once you're done shopping (or before, if you have little ones) check out the real, live petting zoo outside! A bit of a strange situation, as you may be buying chicken and lamb inside. But it's a popular place for both children and adults, and makes grocery shopping an experience!
Don't forget to save your plastic Stew's grocery bag to take with you on your travels around the world! Take a picture of yourself on vacation holding up your Stew's bag and join the legions on the big wall in the store and online. Truly, a place that celebrates the world traveler!
What to buy: Stew's focuses on the "perimeter" foods - bakery, meat, dairy and produce, all excellent quality - there aren't a lot of packaged goods here.
In the summer, there's also a "restaurant" set up outside - more than a snack bar, because you can even get lobster! Also, Stew's has ice cream cones, pizza to go, Chinese food, fried chicken, etc. at the front of the store.
What to pay: Stew's is known for having very good prices, especially on sale items.

Go north on 7 or 202 and travel north to New Milford or continue on up to Kent. Very nice drive. The Housatonic River is on your right .Candlewood Lake is to the left (west) and can be accessed fro a few places off of 7. Pic is of lake around where Brookfield stops and New Milford starts. Candlewood Lake Road _north and south), off 7 is worth the drive. Many motorcyclist love the drive on the weekends and come through in herds. They and others, out driving in the country, often stop and eay at the BBQ "barn" on 7, in New Milford (big red barn looking restaurant) for lunch and dinner. The food is V.good!

Favorite thing: The best thing about Danbury was the Danbury Independent Media Center located at 218 White Street. It may be hard to find, but once you get there you are sure to have a good time!
Fondest memory: I wish I was at the Danbury Independent Media Center eveytime I think about Danbury. It is simply the BEST place to hang out in all of Connecticut.
