In an effort to save money, I have been cooking at home more often. But I still end up spending a lot on food. I was complaining to a guy about it & he said,"If you know where to shop, food in NYC is cheaper than in other parts of the country." I asked him where to go, he said I should talk to his wife about it b/c she's the expert, but he mentioned Chinatown & the Union Sq Market. I won't be meeting up with them any time soon, so I was wondering where you guys go for food bargains.
Are there certain supermarket chains that have better prices than others? Are there special places you go for bargains on produce, cheese (my fave thing in the world), chocolate, seafood, ethnic supplies etc?
