So we just moved from California to Bedford. I love everything about Texas so far, except for the cost of food. Some things are close to what I was used to paying in some stores but most aren't (I can't get over the price of potatoes, $5 and up for a 10lb. bag... $1 to $3 in CA). Which stores have great prices, especially for meat? We've checked out Krogers, Aldi, Tom Thumb, and Albertsons. We shop at Costco for a few items. Thanks!

We just moved here from a small city in the middle of nowhere, and I thought our food prices were high there. The food prices here are surprisingly high. In our area, we have a Kroger, Tom Thumb, and WalMart. I've also been to Whole Foods a few times. Kroger is probably the most reasonable so far, but I'm going to keep checking. My next stop in the CostCo in Southlake. I'd shop at Trader Joe's if there was one within a reasonable distance. That's where I did a lot of my shopping in California.

1 dollar for ten pounds of potatoes? I've never heard of a price like that here or my many years in Tennessee. Doubt you will find that. Been wrong before though!

I wish there was an HEB nearby :\

I use Kroger, sometimes albertsons if the sales are right (their normal pricing is hit or miss and most of the time miss), I don't go to tom thumb because I have too much dissension with the English language in that it tacks on the letter b to random words and I'm supposed to think it's ok (comb, womb, debt, plumber, and don't even get me started on random k's (I'm looking at you, knife)), and also their prices are usually not very good.

You should try out Sprouts and Market Street. The veggies at Sprouts are awesome in price and quality. I like going to Market Street to buy cakes and bakery items.

Walmart Neighborhood markets are a grocery option. New one near my home that Ive just tried for misc items but like its size and every day low prices. Give them a try if you havent. I heard they match prices at any other place any one experience that?

In Bedford, I like the Kroger at Harwood and Central. There's also a Tom Thumb at Harwood and 121, but their prices are higher.

Centrla Market and Market Street are also good, but they are a little further away from you, and Central Market is expensive. Market Street is on 26 at Hall-Johnson, and Central Market is on Southlake Blvd at Carroll Ave.

I wish we had HEB up here. :/

Aldi usually sells 10lbs for around $3 when on sale (otherwise $3.99 regular). We buy lot of our vegetables and fruits from Aldi most of the time.
