We don't have any Wegmans here in Ohio, but we do have some very nice Krogers and Biggs that have become so in tune with local food in recent years that large sections of their stores feel like Whole Foods, which we also have. Add the downtown market to that and it's really quite an enjoyable grocery scene (except for our Trader Joe's, which is surprisingly small and inconveniently located).

Sounds like we'll be walking distance to the Copley Square market and a few T stops from Haymarket. Thanks for those suggestions!

There are also some very high end, specialized gourmet markets in the south end like Lionette's, which specializes in meats but carries some other things and another one, Formaggio's, I think it is, which has a lot of, you guessed it, cheese and fancy appetizer type things for your cocktail parties.

If I lived in the South End, I would probably shop at the Whole Foods at Symphony and at Trader Joe's on Boylston. That TJ's location is really small and doesn't have wine or beer, but I found myself going there when I craved specific TJ's stuff. I might also go to the Harvest Co-Op in JP or Central Sq (depending on my proximity to Mass Ave), because I like supporting co-ops. If you ever been to a big Midwestern farmer's market (like in Madison, WI), you will find the Copley Farmer's Market a bit disappointing. If you really like organic produces and supporting farmers, you might want to look into Boston Organics. It's pretty darn convenient to get a huge box of fruits and veggies delivered. There are also great CSA's with convenient pick-up locations- Red Fire Farm seems to be popular.

If you've arrived in the South End I'd appreciate knowing if you've discovered any great grocery shopping around Boston. My husband and I moved here 2 years ago from the midwest and I am still searching...

You are going to find that the grocery stores, like Shaws, et al, are very expensive in Boston.
