New to Knoxville- Shopping Tips?

Hey All, I've been lurking, and I know there's a few Knoxvillians around here, so I was hoping for some input on the best places to shop for food here. I've read through all the great threads on local restaurants and I'm slowly but surely checking them all out.

I've been lucky enough to arrive at peak summer produce season, so those Grainger County tomatoes have already won my heart. And a special thanks to 'Shallots' for mentioning Ritter Farms in a past post, we went there today and it was awesome! I'm also planning on going to the Market Square Farmer's Market tomorrow for the first time. But what to do in the off season, or for everyday shopping? I know some of the grocery stores have to be better than others. I live in the North Hills neighborhood (dangerously close to Fellini Kroger). I'd love to know where to go to get nice freshly baked breads and maybe some unusual cheeses and stuff.

Also, is anyone familiar with the food co-op on Broadway? It's pretty close to the house, and I've been meaning to go and check it out. Thanks to anyone who can help me out!
