I don't know, but I just bought gluten-free bread at Trader Joe's that was fifty cents cheaper than Whole Foods.

There's a Wegman's nearby but I've never gone to it.

Wegman's is cheaper and has a broader variety of fruits and vegetables. For my purposes, Whole Foods blows away Wegman's for meats, but it is pricey.

Not sure about Wegman's but Whole Foods will certainly take care of vegan needs. Prices are high, but find me any vegan foods that are really all that cheap? Could have luck at Trader Joe's as well. Do a local search as well, could come across some local organic food stores that will have vegan selections as well.

Wegmans has a good organic/vegan section, but Whole Foods is better. If I were you, would would shop at Whole Foods, Trader Joes, Wegmans and maybe even Fairway if you're ever around Paramus. Just see what each one has because maybe one store may have something that's cheaper. Either way, Whole Foods is going to be your go to spot. You can also look for smaller health food stores. On the top of my head, the only good small one I know of is Olive May and that's in East Orange.

Wegman's is cheaper. I can't walk through Whole Foods without raging on how inflated their prices are.

You may also want to investigate Trader Joe's for options, if you are talking about the Wegman's/Whole Foods in West Windsor.

Default hunter gatherer gardener goes full circle to become a viable alternative

find a local farmers market or Amish market...stony brook near Hopewell like many other towns have community gardens.

Kid is a veggie. amazing the price diff on the same items across stores...a litttle bit from here and alittle form there. Wegmans had the same product at two different prices! Depends on how they categorize the foods.

Surprising that Local farms are not cropping up as with today's global market, fungicide in the OJ from Brazil and the garlic from China it is no wonder people are getting sick from mishandled food that comes from the other side of the world. Defeats the point of being a veggie or vegan if health is your goal.

Throw in the dumb azz feds with their nonsensical def or organic, free ranging and so on, the government/consumer guides seem a favor to various industries. Sure, have the feds give us more 'consumer protection!

Being a hunter-gatherer is still a good bet and looking better after each food recall. I'll be starting tomato plants soon. nothing like hickory nuts with a strong maple walnut flavor to supplement your diet. Look around, last year the dewerries had a banner year.

haha where are you from kracer?

i would also suggest vetting out the farmers markets or farms if possible.

in NJ at the ramsey farmers market, there is an organic farm that has been delivering apples, greens and root vegetables all winter. it is wonderful stuff. at the same farmers market is a true free range egg seller. i have been to the farm , which is just in mahwah. AT The same farmers market you can get organic fair trade coffee that was roasted yesterday by a lady who lives/works in ramsey. You can also buy organic milk and organic cheese, from 50 miles away in NY. All kinds of stuff and it's all local and organic .

It can range from about the same price to a lot more expensive though.

my wife are attempting a homestead or farmstead but we're a ways off from any real progress . Maybe 1 year from buying some land at best.
