What grocery stores would you recommend for quality, price, and convenience?

How about fruit stands and local seafood?

Thanks in advance!!

I do most of my grocery shopping at Bi-Lo and Walmart. Bi-Lo seems to have better sales than the other grocery stores. Plus, I like getting money off gas by using my Bi-Lo card.

Any big walmart (super wal-marts) that have a grocery section in them are very reasonable and Publix is also good but certain things that are excpensive there just get at walmart. Bi lo is also reasonable too.

My choices, in order are:

1. Harris Teeter
2. Publix
3. Bi-Lo
4. The Pig, but only their newer, bigger stores.

Food Lion and WalMart are far down my list and only stop there do when no other is near.

I do not especially shop price. I like to go to one place that has everything I want. In and out. The bakery at Harris Teeter and Publix sway me.

Local and in season is my preference..I want to support local owned over the big box stores.

we've been blessed with a neighbor who's dad farms, so we have had the best produce right from the vine....plus our own grown in the garden.

Hoping to be able to find the same in a few weeks, once we've settled.

Thanks again

Depends on how much you mind spending. Harris Teeter/Publix are nice but expensive.
Wal-mart/Piggly Wiggly/Bi-Lo are cheaper but not typically as appealing.
