Give me your opinions of the best places to shop for food!
I'm looking for good quality and decent prices.

Are there places you hit for fruit/veggies as opposed to meats? Does one place have it all?

Let me know! Thanks!

Concentrating on the Westside because you're over there..

Sunflower Market at the intersection of Almeda and Corrales has good fruit, veggies,
decent meats and a different product mix than most supermarkets. Costco on Coors
across from Cottonmouth Mall has some good meats and fruits, but the meats are
sold in larger quantities than sometimes we can deal with. Keller's meats in the
Riverside Mall at Montano and Coors has very high quality meats, but they ain't
cheap.. for two adults they're fine but not if you're feeding a family.

There are also a number of independent markets on 4th north of Montano that
we haven't checked out yet. A couple looked promising for produce.

There may be other good markets just up the hill from you in Rio Rancho but we
don't shop there so that's the best I can do.

Sunflower and Trader Joes over Whole Foods for organic and non-organic fruits and veggies and some fresh meats. Trader Joes also has some great frozen fish, I love the white salmon.

Smith's over Albertson's for basic groceries, including meat and fruits/veggies

Costco for bulk

There's a little fruit/veggie place on Osuna, east of Edith that I really like, Village Market (?)

Thanks, all! It is just the two of us, plus the dogs, which do get a raw food diet.

I wasn't too impressed with Smiths @ Meadowlark/Southern. And while I do like Sunflower, it can be annoying. I have to check out Trader Joes again now that I'm the grocery getter for the household.

And thanks for the Keller's reference!

When I do the shopping it is usually at Smith's, Albertson's and Wal-Mart all which are on Highway 528.

Generally Hill's dog food. With 30+ years of continous dog ownership, I do not believe in raw dog food.

I go to the Smith's at Golf Course/McMahon..much newer and cleaner than the other Smith's.
There's also a butcher on Southern but we've not been yet.

Yup, and I like mine without ear inflections, flatulence and stinky breath, stinky coats, and stinky poo.
