i have a friend whose having a difficult time financially now and has to cut her grocery budget back. so for her that means no more whole foods or trader joes and the like.
so with that said... which chain grocery stores such as safeway, lucky, raley's and the like, have better quality meats, fish, and deli? are there certain days she should shop to get them at their freshest?
i do shop at these stores occasionally, but get our meats, fish and some fruits/veggies at farmers markets, small/local natural foods stores, whole foods, or from my small garden. but honestly, there are times when it's difficult to get to these places or my garden is tapped out, so i'd love to have this info as well.
