      That's good to hear, I go twice a week (mondays and thursday or fridays), and go to the farmers markets saturday or sunday. I can't bear the supermarkets on weekends.

        Our supermarkets are bearable on weekends if you shop before, say, 11:00 a.m. or so.

    2. At least 3, if not 4, times per week, but I'm including the Greenmarket in that calculation. Caveat: I'm not just shopping for home, but for clients, and sometimes I need to honor special last-minute requests.

      1. I do a multi-store shopping extravaganza on Friday nights. When I have plenty of time to cook on the weekends, I usually stop in both Saturday and Sunday morning to pick up fresh items. For most of the week, I am stocked from my Friday trip and make meals that involve less perishable ingredients. In short, 3 times a week.

        1. In Florida, including my produce market, 4 times, I suppose. They are all pretty close. In Mexico, 5.

          1. Once a week minimum. I usually go to 2-3 different stores, Whole Foods, a gourmet market, and occasionally Super Target or my local grocery store. I generally stop by for a quick trip once or twice a week. Especially if I get a craving for something I don't have the ingredients for.
