Over 38.8 million U.S. adults (or 18.3%) agree that they “try to eat gourmet food whenever they can,” with 12.0 million of these consumers strongly agreeing that they seek out gourmet foods. Based on the fall 2004 Simmons consumer survey, The U.S. Market for Gourmet Foods and Beverages: Consumer Profiles lays out the demographics for gourmet consumers overall and for the strongly gourmet-oriented “foodies.” Coverage includes data on weekly grocery shopping expenditures, responsiveness to grocery advertising media, and patterns by supermarket chain (ranging from Wal-Mart to Whole Foods).
