  1. Last week I stock-piled up on whole chicken breast for .60 cents a pound. The sale prices on Johnnie's meats are unbeatable.


    1. Dang, you really can't beat their meat. I got some london broil there a couple weeks ago for $2 a pound, which was nice, but the rib eye (any good?) for $4 is just great.

        Have not tried them yet- but they look pretty good. They are, of course, a bit fatty, about 1 inch thick. They also had some really thick ones for 4.99 pound. The ones on sale are sold in family packs ( 4 to a pack), and the thick ones are sold individually.

      2. Was this at the Brookline store? The prices are a little higher at that one I think.

          Sorry- should have been more specific- I only checked the on line flyer for Melrose.

        2. I go to the one in Brookline & I love it. It's great for deals on meats. I do most of my regular shopping at Whole Foods & Trader Joe's, but for sales Johnnie's has, I go and stock up. I got skinless/boneless chicken there for $1.88/lb. Split whole chix breasts for 88 cents a pound was another deal I went for.

            BackBayGirl, there isn't a Johnnie's Foodmaster in Brookline. Johnnie's Foodmaster has stores located in: Arlington, Charlestown, Lynn, Medford, Melrose, Revere, 2 in Somerville, S. Weymouth and in Whitman. Unless they have opened a new store and it's not listed in this weeks sales flyer?

              I think technically the one in Brookline is called Johnnie's Fresh Market, but it is part of the same company.

                Yes, it is called Johnnie's Fresh Market, but it is a Foodmaster Co. If you go to their website, you will see a flyer for their Brookline outlet.

                  Thanks, I learned something new today.

                  1. re: BackBayGirl

                    I learned something new today too. I had been to Johnnies Fresh Market before and had no idea it was related to Foodmaster.

            2. I bought the rib eyes - my mistake. However the whole chicken breasts and bacon were great for for the price.

                Were the ribeyes bad? I've noticed they're on sale at the Brookline store.

                I also love the eastern european fruit juices they sell, esp pomegranate and sour cherry. The labels aren't very appealing (and they could use a dusting), but the product is quite good.

                They don't seem to be baking bread in-store like they did when they first opened, or am i just going by at the wrong time? It used to often smell like fresh baked bread, and the baguettes would still be warm.
