Readers' Poll Runner Up: Time Market, 444 E. University Blvd. One of Tucson's most charming establishments for specialty grocery items and takeout is none other than the historic Time Market, on University Boulevard East of Forth Avenue. The moment you walk through the front door past folks sitting at the outside tables, you know why the place is always hopping. At the far end of the shop is the deli. The first time you order a sandwich, leave time to read the entire menu of uniquely named concoctions. The Grecian is a favorite among vegetarians. The staff is friendly and the sandwiches are good sized. One tip: Don't go in at noon and expect to get out quickly; this is a popular place for lunch. If you do have to wait, there are plenty of interesting confections, wines and condiments lining the shelves for your specialty shopping delight.
