Calling all fans of Trader Joe's, Fresh market, Harris Teeter, and Whole Foods...

I am constantly reading blogs where people rave about a product they bought at one of these stores. Especially Trader Joe's. So, out of curiosity I Google'd these stores today to see if there were any in the Nashville area, and guess what? We have all of them! So, this weekend (weather permitting), I am going on a field trip. I think it will be fun to just go to these stores and walk around, and pick up some of the products that are favorites of my Blogging friends. Brian Douglas just talked about some Mandarin Orange Chicken from TJ's, and someone else found some Quick-cook Steel cut oats there. Kath (KERF) had some coffee from Fresh market on her blog today that looked so yummy. All of the stores are about 40 miles away and pretty close to each other, so I might decide to make this trip once or twice per month if the items are worth it.

SO, I am asking all of my Blogger friends to recommend your favorite products from these stores. What is offered here that I won't be able to buy at my local Publix, Kroger, or Wal-mart?


  1. Trader Joe's has LOTS of fun snack foods. It is really easy to get completely overwhelmed with all of the yummy choices. My favorites at Trader Joes include: sliced Parmesan cheese, sliced peppered salami, ring of french rolls, pretzel things, Wasabi Wow! trail mix, orange flavored dried cranberries, peanut butter pretzels, 0% TJ Fage style greek yogurt. Most of the products sold are Trader Joes store brand. Have fun!

  2. Whole foods sells whole grains in bulk for a lot less than normal grocery stores. Whole foods also has a large selection of bulk medicinal and culinary herbs, tinctures, homeopathic remedies and many things geared to herbal/alternative medicine.They also carry a large selection of organic produce, meats and excellent cheeses. Trade Joes offers a nice selection of wines at lower prices

  3. I love Trader Joe's Flax cereal, light coconut milk, and pomegranate iced tea.

    I love Whole Foods, but their prices are quite prohibitive for me.

  4. I like the frozen green beans at Trader Joes
