Hey all --
I'm curious where the other SC chowhounds do their shopping. I have a few different stops, for specific things --
produce and meat: Shoppers' Corner. The yellow onions are never more than 49c a pound, often less. Celery is 99c, green onions 69c, butter lettuce 99c . . . best produce prices in town, and excellent quality. As for meat, their prices and quality are also very good. I buy my ground turkey and ground beef there for $2.99/lb.
bulk bins and seafood: Staff of Life. The bulk spice/tea selection is great, and if I only need 1/2 tsp. of something for one recipe, I end up there. re: Seafood -- I've never been steered wrong by the fish guys at SofL. Delicious red trout, scallops, and roughy. Nothing has smelled fishy or been the least bit off.
I hit up Trader Joe's for dairy, eggs, cereal, and tortillas. Costco for cheese. Safeway for national brand name things I can't find at my usual haunts (though, the Safeway in Seabright is always understocked in what I happen to need, and doesn't have as good a selection as the one on Mission). Oh, and on Wednesdays, I go to the farmers' market downtown for fresh herbs.
Where do you shop, for what items?
