Always love to go to Draeger's and soak in the sights and smell of a historical shopping place and not the crowded big supermarkets that have no originality. The pastry area was so enticing, our teens had eyes bigger than their tummies, they just wanted...More

This is a wonderful place to shop for food that you can't find anywhere else. Otherwise it is pretty overpriced, the clerks are sometimes not getting along with each other, and the patrons tend to be a bit snooty. The upstairs has all the kitchen...More

Every grocery store should learn from Draeger's. An experience you won't forget in San Mateo. Great wine selection, beautiful fruit and veggies, but the desserts are the treat!!! A wonderful young lady suggested some special desserts for us and they were the best ever. Paradise...More

Wow, we stumbled across this place and were in awe. I would love to have a place like this at home. Top quality food and a huge variety. The prices are higher than at home, but it is San Mateo.

This market has things you won't find in some other high end markets. It is pricey but well worth it if you do your research. I love their butcher shop, cheese shop, and seafood shop.

Walking through this market is an uplifting visual experience in neatness, order, and international selections one cannot locate elsewhere. The liquor department, cheese, meat, fish, deli bakery and to-go foods are of a wide variety. Upstairs is retail shopping for the finest in house and...More

Draegers is not a full scale deli nor a restaurant. It is a very, very upscale high class food market with not only local produce but the best the world has to offer in everything else. You will find $4000 bottles of premier cru wine...More
