    Depends on where I am. When I am in town, it is either Walmart, Aldi or Food Lion. When I am visiting friends in Charlotte, it is usually Walmart, Trader Joe’s, Harris Teeter or any of the asian grocery stores. So never 1 place that I buy everything from.

    Pick N Save and Sentry and Aldis. 

    Though once in a great while, Target and WalMart.

    Farmers market for veggies as much as possible

    Then Foodmax for most other things.

    Most meat comes from Safeway because they have good sales and markdown meats. Everything else there is shockingly more expensive then Foodmax

    Trader Joes when I am near one for random things I like there.

    Other random ethnic markets for harder to find ingredients.

    Or any market I am in for something and find items that I need and are good priced (Target, Walmart, etc)

    Meijer!!!!!  http://www.meijer.com    In my opinion –  very fresh and rare produce, great quality, good prices,  huge variety in dry grocery.  Plus its great to support a company that started in my home state, still family owned, and really give back to community.  They have a store card for 5 cents off each gallon of gas also.

    I shop at WinCo and Albertsons. WinCo has the best prices, but it can be pretty overwhelming. I love Albertsons because of their great coupons!

    My favourite “regular” store is Save on Foods (I think it’s exclusively Canadian, though). For discount/bulk, I’ve used The Real Canadian Superstore and Costco. Sobey’s and Co-op are okay too, but I’m usually much more impressed by the selection/produce at Save on Foods.

    ETA: I refuse to shop at Wal-Mart because of their business practices, but that’s just me.

    We do the majority of our food shopping at a big public market that we have here in cleveland called the Westside market. We live fairly close and I’ve found that I end up spending less overall and it’s sort of fun to make it a weekly trip. 

    Sometimes we will go out to trader joes or whole foods but those are not really all that close to us so we don’t go often.

    A combination of Wal-Mart, Shop Rite, and Costco.

    @claireos: I love “the teet” as we like to call it. In our old place that’s where we shopped, but now it’s too far to justify going there. I used to eat so many of their free samples!

    I usually shop at 1 of 2 locally owned grocery stores when I am home.  They aren’t national chains, and are owned and operated by local families.

    When Darling Husband and I are together, we go to the commisary/NEX on the Navy base because it’s tax free.

    Target for basics like eggs, lunchmeat, bread, cereal, cheese, frozen dinners, snacks, etc. Costco for meat and Giant Eagle for everything else (sadly, b/c it’s so high priced). Aldi once in a blue moon. When I lived on my own I was close to Shop-N-Save, Food Lion and Kuhns.

    When I lived in Boston, Market Basket, Trader Joe’s, and/or Whole Foods. 

    In Florida where I live now, Publix.  Very rarely will I go to Winn-Dixie or Walmart.  Publix is so much better.  But I do miss Trader Joe’s and Whole Foods!
