You'll love WholeFoods...it's the best in Atlanta. I always liked Harris Teeter also, but they all closed here and I'm not sure why.

We have Whole Foods here in S. California. Yes, very nice store but VERY pricey. Other than that, the grocery store chains here are very bad. And I REALLY miss Harris Teeter. HT had made its way up to DC before I moved away and I loved that place.

Ok, I'll take your word for it. The Harris Teeters are really good than ? I never heard of them up here, of course that doesn't mean much. I bet the farmers markets are great down there, much longer growing season than here in Connecticut. Thanks for the encouragement !!! And I feel much sweeter now, knowing I'll be able to eat well, lol.

Our store is the PlazaMidwood HT, and its always PACKED. Like someone said its small, and less selection but its a 3 minute drive from our house.

The southpark HT seems to be very nice with nice selection. And we also venture to the Fresh Market occasionally.

When I was down in the area last year, I checked out some of the grocery stores. I'd be lying if I didn't say I was disappointed. With seperate trips to Food Lion, Bi-Lo and Harris Teeter I thought one of those would have what I wanted: selection. For some reason it seems like selection is really lacking. Out of those 3 HT was the best, but even that was disappointing.

I love to cook. For me, part of the fun in cooking comes from making things from scratch. For example, I can't eat spaghetti sauce out of a jar. Just can't do it. I enjoy the process of having it all come together. So naturally I'm always looking for fresh ingredients. The selection of fresh produce in all 3 stores left a lot to be desired. Some stores not only didn't have a good selection, but they didn't even have what I was looking for.

If those were my only choices I'd be shopping at HT for sure. But is there something better? Are there other grocery stores that have an excellent produce section? When asking around the last time I was there, someone mentioned a Lowe's Foods? Recommended it BECAUSE it had a better produce section? Anyone shop there? Locations?

Thanks
the walmart grocery stores are good. If you never have been to one all the have is grocery items and nothing else there great!

If anyone is a coupon clipper or doesn't mind doing it, I would recommend checking out the Grocery Game (.com) website. I have found it most helpful with shopping here in RI but actually received the info from folks already living in NC. Hope this helps.....

I'm from the north and man oh man do I miss Giant! They had the best salad bar. But anyways I live in North Mecklenburg and I get my groceries at Lowe's off of Eastfield Rd. It's very clean, the staff is friendly and they have a huge assortment of meats. Good Luck!

Anyone who shops at Harris Teeter and complains about lack of selection is delusional. One is hard pressed NOT to find anything they could possible need at a Harris Teeter. Anyone new to the area should check it out.

I have never had one visiting out-of-town guest who did not marvel at Harris Teeters, especially Morrocroft.

Maybe they wanted an RC Cola. I've shopped at Harris Teeters from Statesville to Monroe and Charleston. The only thing I can remember needing that they did not have was when I wanted a gag gift for a retirement party. I had to go to Bi Lo to get an RC Cola. Does anyone remember RC Cola and a Moonpie?
