Ask the Readers: Where Do You Shop for Groceries?

Editor's Note: Congratulations to Thomas, Troy, and Ernest for winning this week's contest!

When someone asks you where you buy your groceries, the obvious answer used to be "the grocery store, of course". But with the growing popularity and availability of farmer's and ethnic markets, not to mention fresh produce at a number of big box and warehouse stores, you and your neighbors can get groceries from a variety of sources. You might even order your groceries online!

Where do you buy your groceries? Do you do all your shopping at one place, or do you go to different stores for certain items? Which of these factors do you care the most about when you go grocery shopping: price, quality, or convenience?

Tell us where you shop for groceries and we'll enter you in a drawing to win a $20 Amazon Gift Card!

There are so many grocery stores within a 10 minute drive so I usually look at the circulars for the week and go to a couple that have the best sales. And I always buy my produce and Korean products at the Korean market. The produce is so cheap! I can get 10 green onion bundles for $1 as opposed to .99 for one at my local ralphs.

Albertsons, Costco, Target, Amazon, Sam's Club, Ralph's, small grocers for special (ethnic) items, Trader Joe's. We have learned where to find the best quality at the lowest prices.

We primarily shop at Festival Foods - they consistently have the best price, good selection and wonderful store employees. If we're short on just one or two items we might show at one store a bit closer but the selection isn't as good (esp fruit and deli because of low turnover) anf prices are higher; sometimes it's not worth the extra gas $ to go to the better store.

I tend to buy the same things over again so I have been buying frozen item X at Target where it is the best price and fresh item Y at the ethnic store because they have the best price and item Z at Trader Joe's because I love its taste best.
