Exercise 11. Translate into Russian.

Lesson One. At the Supermarket

There are many kinds of shops.You can go shopping to small food stores: the grocery store, liquorstore, store of dairy products, butcher’s, bakery, greengrocer’s, fishmonger’s, confectionery, candy store.But many of us prefer to shop in large stores — supermarkets. Supermarketssell more than just food. Many sell items for the car, household goods,cosmetics and cigarettes. Some even sell books, medicines and flowers.

When you come into the supermarket, you take a food basket or a shopping cart. People buy here different foodstuff such as meat, fish, milk,grocery, baked items, sweets, cooked sausages, smoked foods, vegetables and fruit.In the meat aisle the customers can buy beef, pork, mutton, veal,poultry and game.There is always a rich choice of fish there: live carp, pike, bream andsheat fish. There is much fresh-frozen fish: perch, cod, plaice and someother like pike-perch and sturgeon. There is herring, kipper and muchtinned fish too.

In the grocery aisle you can see all kinds of cereals: oatmeal, semolina, rice, buckwheat, millet, pearl barley. You can buy cooking soda,spices, flour, pea, potato flour, salt, oil, macaroni, vermicelli, noodles and some other products.

You go to the dairy counter to buy milk products. There is always awide choice of them: milk in bottles and packets, cream, kefir, sourcream, cheese, curds, cottage cheese, cream cheese, many kinds ofyogurt, mayonnaise, margarine and butter.

At the bread counter you take loaves of brown (rye) or white (wheat)bread, rusks, rolls and buns.There is a big choice of items in the confectionery: sugar, granulatedsugar, caramel, sweets, chocolates, bars of chocolate, biscuits, pastry,jam puffs, fancy cakes, tarts, fruit cakes, wafers, marmalade and alsotea, coffee, cocoa.

Next to it is the delicatessen counter (deli) which offers you allkinds of sausages: boiled, half-smoked and smoked, liver paste, ham,lean boiled pork with spices (buzhenina), tinned beef and pork.

The green grocery and fruit aisles look very attracting. Here you canbuy fresh, tinned and dried vegetables, fruit and greens. Juicy pears,apples, plums, grapes, oranges, tangerines, bananas, lemons andpineapples are sold in every season. In spring and summer the shop hasa great variety of berries: strawberries, cherries, raspberries, black andred currants, gooseberries. In autumn and winter — red bilberries andcranberries and all year round you can have fruit and berry jams.

After all, you come up to the cashier’s desk to pay the money. Sometimes there are a lot of customers inthe shop and you get in line, but most often it doesn’t takemuch time.

If you are a smart shopper, you compare prices, pick out foodstuffs,always look at the date on the labels of perishable foods, check thechange and look for bargains. As the English say, “A penny saved is apenny earned.”
