What is your favorite store to buy groceries from? My personal favorite is Trader Joes, but they do not always carry everything I need. My 2nd favorite would be Costco.
Ditto for me. In Columbia, MD during this pandemic I have found Whole Foods to be absurdly crowded, worse than the 'Wal Marts around there. Plus, their ready to purchase breads and pastries have really gone downhill. I could not find a whole grain or whole wheat pizza crust there either (though Wegmans has whole wheat ready to go dough as well as sprouted pizza crusts). However, even Wegmans pastries cannot compare to a 70 year old family owned bakery in Beltsville , MD, Rawls, where prices hardly go up.Whole Foods is very expensive and I rarely go there unless it is for a specialty item. I support that all the food is organic, but I can't live with the cost of eating from there.
Do you recall Harris Teeter having their own brand cake mix? The community rep told me HT never had their own cake mix but I recall using them at least 5-6 times. They were so superior to the big brands in taste it was remarkable ...made me wonder who was producing them. Now I feel like I am in the Twilight Zone with HT rep telling me they never produced them However she was very young and I have a memory that does not forget good cake or cake mixes.I had a really bad experience with Costco lately that's making me question whether I want to continue being a member there, which is a shame given that we've been very loyal to them for years.
But my favorites right now are Whole Foods, Trader Joes and Harris Teeter has actually impressed me, as well .
For generalized items, especially 100% grape juice (identical to Welch's) , stock items and larger purchases, Wal Mart beats (price) everyone. However their selection is nowhere near as good as Kroeger, Giant, Harris Teeter or even Weiss Markets. I only get to Kroeger when in Virginia visiting my son #1 family. whole Foods has really gone downhill in my opinion and Trader Joes lacks so many of standard items. Aldi however has good prices but the brands they sell ?? Who knows where their offerings come from.What is your favorite store to buy groceries from?
