Well, that settles it. I'm moving to Russia! That looks like grocery heaven.

My favorite grocery store was Fresh Market, before they closed the store out here. I'm still mourning, seriously. They had top-notch meats and spices, fantastic (albeit pricey) produce, a huge and wonderful selection of bulk foods, and lots of things I can't get elsewhere. I haven't had chocolate-covered peanut butter-filled pretzels in MONTHS. It's grim.

I get most of my produce at the Farmers' Market in spring, summer, and fall. I also get eggs, honey, and maple syrup there, along with some baked goods from time to time. For everything else, and in the winter, I do almost all of my grocery shopping at Meijer. It's big and clean and has a nice selection. Their store-brand organics are good quality and affordable. Their meat selection could be better. I also like that they're local (a regional chain based in MI). I like to support local businesses when possible.

When I go to Eugene, OR, my favorite grocery store is Market of Choice. I also
have to go to Trader Joe's, while not a full service grocery store, it still is a "must" to visit.

I like Whole Foods, Sunflower Market and Trader Joe. I think they sell some of the best food out there, and they sell organic products which I've noticed conventional grocers are finally catching on to.

Smile RALEY'S Supermarket

I love to grocery shop at RALEY'S Supermarket. They have a great selection of food items. When I come across new ingredients to me in a recipe RALEY'S always stocks them. They've never let me down.

Hi all. New to this forum. I am a nurse but I think I missed my calling. I love to cook. I learned knife skills from Foodnetwork and Emeril. To answer the post we have Publix markets locally and the Menonites farms here in Ky for fresh produce which is of course seasonal but awesome. Canning is a good alternative to saving what is now fresh. I am trying to freeze some tomatoes for later use. Has anyone ever done that and how did they turn out for use in soups in stews, etc.... or sauces?
Thanks to those who have time to answer any questions!
