Hello everyone,

I will be moving to your wonderful city in one month ( I can not wait! ) I was hoping that I could get some info on the grocery stores in Lex. I really do not care for Walmart.
What stores have the best prices? Who has the most variety? Do any stores have fresh baked breads? How about a good deli section?

Any info would be great

Thanks

Kroger is about the only game in town. Its not the greatest. There's a Whole Foods in Lexington now, if you're into that. I like their meats and seafood.

Unfortunately, there's no Wegmans here.

There is a lovely Fresh Market just inside New Circle Road on Tates Creek Road.
There is a privately-owned store on Southland Drive called Slone's Market.
Also on Southland, there is a whole-foods store called Good Foods. There is a Wild Oats store on Nicholasville Road, just inside New Circle, in Lexington Green shopping center, which has horrid traffic. I'd go for Good Foods instead, which is locally owned with no traffic to speak of.

The big grocery store chain in Lexington is called Kroger. There is another chain called Meijer, which has two locations.

For good homemade bread, go for the Sunrise Bakery on Main Street not too far from the library. I am not sure whether any of the grocery stores have bread, as I bake my own when I want homemade bread. But the Sunrise Bakery is a treat.

As for prices, just buy what is on sale and you won't do too badly no matter where you shop.

Kroger is where I normally shop. Almost all neighborhoods have a Kroger that is close by. They have quality meats, deli foods, and produce.

Now, my favorite? It's actually Fresh Market that was mentioned earlier. Love it! They have unique foods including gourmet items in their deli that you can take and cook or they'll even prepare up for you there. I don't shop there regularly because it's out of my budget. Oh, they have a great price on fresh flowers though!

I've lived here in Lexington for 8 years, and a week before we move to Tennessee I walk into Fresh Market for the first time. They had a dozen roses (all different colors) for $6.99. I told my husband he needed to buy me roses before we move, but I don't think I'll see any.

LOL I buy roses from there all the time for various things... including just to make myself smile! I think they've gone up to 8.99/doz now which is still a bargain. They are quality roses too.... wonderful smell and they last!

Does anyone think Lexington could support Trader Joe's? I'd like to see one there and in Louisville. Anyone interested in emailing them with me, to sell the Lexington to Louisville corridor?

I emailed them a couple months ago. Never got a response from them.
