There is a point that is reached, after one eats hundreds of sandwiches over the course of years, when the classics can't satisfy anymore. Peanut butter and jelly or cold cuts with cheese and lettuce just seem bland and uninteresting.
My grandmother was notorious for her peanut butter and sardine sandwiches.
This week, Jackson Hole Marketplace has released a brand new menu of sandwiches that put a spin on classic combinations. The featured concoctions include "The Badass Pastrami," with 10 ounces of meat on 406 Bakery Rye Bread, "The Rod Father," with roast beef, bacon jam and Swiss on ciabatta, and the "Hippie Snack," with tomato, iceberg lettuce, avocado, pickled red onion, Havarti and hummus on multigrain.
If you, like my grandmother, have more aberrant tastes, the deli is also offers build-your-own sandwiches made to order.
The new menu is part of an effort by new general manager Seth Compton and owner Stephen Abrams to transform the market at 4125 Pub Place, on South Highway 89, into a local hangout for South Park residents of all ages. The deli plans to develop a sit-down eating area once concern over COVID-19 has lessened.
"Between the new menu and the new store layout, Marketplace will be a great spot for families and local businesses to come together and enjoy a good meal," wrote Compton in a press release.
The sandwiches are made to order at the deli counter in the South Park bottle shop. They are also available for curbside pick up or local delivery via the ChowNow app.
