    1. re: goodhealthgourmet

      I hit the same TJ's and Mitsuwa as well as the A&P in Edgewater depending what is on sale. I get produce at the produce market by my office and at the weekly farmers market in Hoboken.

    2. Regularly:
      local farmers market
      Trader Joe's
      Grand Asia or Vietnamese market near my home
      Earps (local fish market)

      Every so often:
      Fresh Market
      Whole foods
      Earth Fare
      Harris Teeter
      Food Lion
      Lowes Foods

      When I can work it in to a road trip:
      Amazing Savings (WNC)
      Your Dekalb Farmers Market

      I tried a CSA, but the pickup spots just weren't convenient for me. I'm open to trying again in the future if that situation changes.

      1. In Las Vegas:
        Trader Joe's
        Sunflower Market
        International Marketplace
        Fresh & Easy, every once and awhile, as well as Wal-Mart
        In LA:
        Marukai Market

        1. Trader Joe's, Market Basket, Farmers Market's, and my garden......that is all :)

            Trader Joes (one near home, one near work!)
            Farmers market/farm stand in season

            Once every couple of weeks:
            Busch's (local chain with store near work)
