    Occasionally, I go to Seafood City & the 99 Ranch Market, which are Asian grocery stores. Anyone have any of them in their area?

    I forgot about costco. I buy a lot there when I go with my parents!

    I buy most of my food from the local farmer's market :) it's awesome to live in a place where fresh fruits, veggies, and meats are available year-round. I also go to a local butcher. For anything else, Winn Dixie or Whole Foods (for "hippie" cereal and salad dressing).

    I miss living next to a Giant Eagle market district (when I was in Pa and Oh). That is probably my favorite type of grocery store, followed by Metcalfe's Market, a local chain in Madison, Wi.

    Jungle Jim's is fabulous, but a little fr for my regular shopping.

    Mostly Kroger and Target, although a local store, Dorothy Lane Market, is great, but pricey.

    Besides Shop Rite, A & P, Stop and Shop, Pathmark, and Kings (Upscale), Fairway markets have entered the northern NJ area. There are many speciality markets as well. One that I love is the Market Basket. Their meats, seafood, bakery, deli, and prepared foods are very well known in Northern NJ. Their catering gets so busy during the summer that they employ students studying at the Culinary Institute to help out.

    I'm pleasantly surprised with the produce at the 99 Cent Store! They've got quite an array being the kind of cheap store that it is. The only edibles I get there sometimes are produce, water, & juice...sometimes eggs.

    Well, I'm sort of in your area, or at least region, but I used to love 99 Ranch when we lived near one. :)

    I think most of California's Targets are what were formerly known as "Super Targets," so they all have a grocery section.

    We will often buy things like cereal, milk, frozen stuff, bread, or condiments there, but I don't like their produce section, and I've never tried to buy meat there.

    Speaking of the grocery section of Target, Target is technically the closest store to where I live to get food from. However, more now than ever, I'm buying as much organic as possible, which Target's grocery section doesn't seem to have.

    Farm Fresh is my fave, but also pretty expensive. I end doing most of my shopping at Food Lion.
