Weekly Photo Challenge: Everyday Life – Making Groceries

Making groceries at the Pig in Simmsport, Louisiana. “Making groceries” is a Creole to English language phrase from New Orleans that has managed to endure cultural tempering and is still used by many in south Louisiana to describe a trip to the grocery store.  The theme song for a long lived but unfortunately no longer existing New Orleans based grocery store chain, Schwegmann’s, proudly proclaimed, “making groceries Schwegmann’s style!”  In this case, groceries are being made at another one of my favorite southern rural places, Piggly Wiggly.

  3. I got busted (by my mother) for shoplifting candy from a Piggly Wiggly in International Falls, MN when I was seven. An indelible memory, if not an everyday one. 🙂 Thanks for the pingback!

  7. Groceries Store : everyone everyday life of any nation. Nice interpretation…

    Oh yeah, please check my post too. I am sharing the picture of batik : Indonesia National and Traditional Clothing. Hope you enjoy it.

  8. This is a great black and white image. It seems ageless. I am looking at the cars and still can’t tell if it is a recent picture. Nice!
    Also I have only heard the term “Making groceries” once before and now I have an idea where it came from.
