My wife and I are moving to Seattle (maybe Magnolia, Queen Anne or West Seattle?) this spring and would like to know about the best grocery stores. We don't want to be forced into generic Safeways and Kroger branded stores like QFC (Kroger has ruined King Soopers here). We've got a Whole Foods here in Denver, which has great produce, meat/seafood, cheese and bakery, but we're not granola types, so we still have to shop the big chains for cereal, frozen foods and supplies - and wine at other stores. Are there any stores in Seattle we could get a large selection with quality food, cool/hard to find products and "staples" all in one store?
It's great to have this board to save us the hassle!
