Wegman's---Marylander's Perspective

ICD | Mar 13, 2004 06:30 PM

Went to Wegman's late morning on Friday with wife and four-month old boy. It's about 35 miles and 45 minutes from Twinbrook neighborhood in Rockville, probably less time for those who don't ALWAYS get lost in Virginia (who knew Sully Rd. is Route 28). The main virtue of the store is that it has everything in one location at reasonable prices. If I were in Rockville, I would have had to go to Magruder's for cheap fruits and vegetables, Trader Joe's for basics, Whole Food's for fresh fish, liquor store for wine, Eatzi's for prepared foods (I am not an Eatzi's fan, but the scope of prepared foods more than rivaled Eatzi's.), etc., etc., etc. Highlight of the trip was a rack of lamb for $10.99. Saw the same thing in Congressional Plaza Whole Foods for $19 this morning. Cooked it up last night, and it tasted restaurant quality. Apples, my fruit favorite, were $1.29 and were extremely high quality. Will I go again? Yes, but not regularly. It's little too far and with the BOY, and food shopping at a number a local stores is one of life's little pleasures for me.
