Please toss out your selections. My opinion:
Stew's great for dairy and their homemade salsa, not much else. Their meat is tasteless, poor quality.
Whole Foods is fine for several products: ground nut butters, grains and the like that are available in bulk, some harder to find healthier/veggie/organic products. their meat is fine/okay quality but with a higher price than reasonable. Their produce in the main is too highly priced for what should be average quality stuff. I wouldn't go near the seafood.
In NYC Fairway does a decent job with meats, seafood, some limited healthier/veggie items and very good produce at reasonable prices. unfortuantely they are not a full service supermarket.
Can someone suggest other choices? I am beginning to tackle the towns one by one at this point. I tried 2 in Hastings without luck: organic place was tiny and over priced; Food Emp. as usual in my experience was a supermarket-lette: tiny, limited offerings and over priced.
