grocery store in santa barbara

We're be eating most meals out in restaurants but always like to keep some fruit and a good yogurt (like Strauss Greek) in our room. Is there a full-service grocery store or coop along State St or downtown/midtown?

There's a Ralph's at State St & Carillo, a Smart and Final on Garden Street, or Vons (Safeway) will deliver.

thanks, Tom, but none of these carry the Strauss yogurt. There must be an upscale-grocery store that we can get to by city bus or uber?

Whole Foods is a high quality market, with prices to match, and might carry that particular yogurt.

Yes -- Whole Foods or Trader Joes. Both on upper state street. We also have a Lazy Acres but it is on the mesa.

I'd look at Tri-County Produce too.

Thanks. WF has responded that they carry it. And I can get there by city bus. Yay!

There's also Cantwell's on State Street and Arrellaga. It has good selection of stuff not commonly found at the big brand grocery stores (more like independent market). They also make really good sandwiches. They're about 4 blocks up from SB Window Fashions on Figueroa (http://sbwindowfashions.com). If you have time, check out their storefront - great decor!

Wow, wish I had known--we were staying on Arrellaga just 2 blocks from State! Will remember for next time--thanks, Hudson.
