Thanks in advance.

Sprouts isn't really all that high-percentage organic. It's a "natural foods" store though and sells lots of supplements and gunk. The produce prices and meat counter are what I go for.

Tom Thumb is a/k/a Randall's in other areas.

There are also the Mexican ones - Carnival stores and El Rancho Supermercado stores around, plus Minyards and Brookshires which are smaller mainstream chains.

Is Fiesta up in Dallas? Whenever I drove to Houston, I didn't feel like I was 'in' H-Town until I saw the bright lights of Fiesta Mart off I-10. Grocery stores are thought of as mundane and subtle, Fiesta is the total opposite of that!

We have Fiesta, but I've stopped shopping there because I've seen way too much rotten produce for my taste. El Rancho Supermercado, on the other hand, is very nice.

Yeah, that new El Rancho on Coit is great. And I don't get laughed at too bad using my minimal Spanish at the cheese counter. :-)

I know where that is. Tell us a little more about that. How does it compare to Sprouts in terms of produce quality and prices?
