Ahhh, Ikea. The place where millions of people flock like sheep to buy cheap couches and bookcases with names that sound more like fungal infections (blaxmo, slojda, staffli) than furniture.
But who knew that Ikea is also a great place to go food shopping? The Swedish Marketplace, located conveniently near the checkout area, is the home of imported food (again with crazy names). Here, you can buy cookies, drinks, meatballs, and herring, herring, and herring. The best part? Like the furniture -- it's totally cheap!
