Just moved here to and well our 3 kids (5, 7, 10,) will not have to wear uniforms.... I think this is great, uniforms get very expensive, and it seems you are always buying the kids two wardorbes one for school and one for everyday life. I have always been against them, so to not have to buy anymore is fantastic. Regarding the grocery stores, I find my overall total over $100 cheaper than when I shopped for the same brand items in Florida. Even the gas is cheaper. There is a co-op where we live as well.... But Krogers and Walmart supercenter is where I do groceries. Oh the meat, poultry, and pork, is much cheaper as well. I did some research and its because there are many slaughter farms in TN..... Therefore they don't have to ship as far.

I like the grocery stores in Knoxville better than any other place I have ever lived. Publix was great, but I like Kroger's more and LOVE Fresh Market.

Any Organic markets in Maryville or Knoxville? Not just vitamins but actually groceries like grass fed beef, free range chicken and eggs?

Since you mentioned Kroger, here are some things to compare to Arizona prices from the weekly ad they mail out.

Fry's Supermarket (owned by Kroger) is selling milk this week at $1.99 a gallon.

Salmon fillets are $3.98/lb
New York Strip steak is $4.88/lb
Budweiser, Miller, or Coors is $15.99 for a 24/can pack
Kroger Yogurt is 10 for $4.00
Cottage Cheese (24 oz) is $1.99
Fry's canned vegetables are 20 for $10.00
Fresh sweet corn is 20 for $10.00

So how do those compare?

Actually bread at Kroger is 3.99 but I only buy whole grain. You can always get that 99 cent loaf that no one eats-

Three Rivers Market on North Broadway (near the 4th and Gill neighborhood) is a food co-op that sells organic groceries and free range meats. While I like Earth Fare out in Turkey Creek, too, not everything at Earth Fare is organic, and I'd rather support the local businesses than an out-of-state conglomerate. Still, Earth Fare definitely has a larger selection and also has a really, really good sandwich bar where they'll make you the best club sandwich you've ever had (nitrate-free bacon, free range chicken, etc.).

New York Strip is $9.99 for no roll, $11.99 for choice
Fresh Sweet Corn 5 for $2 at food city
not sure on the other items but i've never seen canned goods for under 79 cents each
