The Miejer's here gets their produce from local growers with it being super fresh but what is in season. Kroger's has always been good for produce and meats. Whole Foods here is really more expensive than Kroger's but everything is organic. I also can get fresh fish at Whole Foods to but it is very expensive.

We have a farmer's market here too and I get my beef and pork from one of the vendors usually in half rough butchered. Just great stuff but not year around.
Iím rather impressed with Kroegerís meat selection myself. Publix also has great meat, but are a little pricey compared to Kroeger. I donít have a Miejer or Whole Foods here. Iíve heard so much abut Whole Foods that Iíd really like to try it.

A new Publix opened a few miles from the house that we have been using primarily here lately. They are really great about doing special cuts in the butcher department if you ask them.

We have one here in Michigan as well, I'll have to get the directions to where it is, and go from there.

You wouldn't want a Miejers Let me tell you, Miejers here SUCK, It sucks really really bad the food is over priced and the deals suck, I mean they say your getting half off but they mark up a lot of the stuff so they can mark it down to the normal price.

I hope you understood what I mean by the mark up and down game!

As for the produce it's just that I don't like them pre-picking for me. I'd like to pick my own of whatever. We've got alot of Farmers Markets here come summer but I'll have my own garden going by then and won't have to worry about it.

I'm not crazy about Heinen's......I don't want to have to drive any distance just to buy produce.
I think Barb & Patty are BUTCHerettes, if you get my drift. I like going there because they will cut anything in the meat case for a two person meal, unlike Giant Eagle. Their sausages are excellent, rivaling the ethnic meat shops like Radells and Ozmans. As far as Heinens, their stuff is nice, but the prices are a bit high. FYI, B&P's is past Heinens on Mentor Ave. (Local info only)

You are so bad!!!
I've never tried their sausages......I usually go to Rudy's in Willowick because I've gone there for years. I'll have to give B&P's a try!

We have two Miejer's here though I'm only visited the one closest to me. I never heard of them until I came to Kentucky as don't exist in other states I've lived in through the years.

The one I go to is excellent though I don't buy a lot of meats from them unless I get it directly from the butcher shop at the meat counter. They do have a full time butcher which is unusual in this day and age. I actually rarely buy beef and pork except from a local grower that I know. I will occasionally buy a cut though if it is a good looking piece of meat though.

I calls 'em likes I sees 'em. Rudy's is good. I buy the Slovenian smoked sausages there. Also, I get my hair cut at the barber shop next door.

Barb and Patty use to be on Mayfield Rd and I use to go there all the time. They use to make smoked chicken as well as smoked turkey. I wondered where they moved to.

JoeV, did you ever try the butcher shop in E 185th--I am not sure it is still there but they use to make their own sausage as well. I believe they are related to the DeGaetano family. (if I spelled that right) Actually, there were two shops really near one another.

Paul lives over by me, and he can't cut hair worth a shit. I looked like a stepladder on the back of my head when he used to cut my hair, so now only Frank does it.

I'm not allowed back in that neighborhood for reasons which I shall not elaborate on.

Around here in the PNW it's all pretty readily available shipped either from Mexico or California. The freshness of it is another thing, it just depends on which store you go to. For my "regular" grocery items I go to one store but their produce and meat isn't exactly the greatest so then I go somewhere else....

It's usually Safeway or Top Foods....not in Iss though. The Front Street Market also has pretty good produce and seafood as well, much better than Freds!
