I live in a big city so I have many choices. There are certain stores that have better produce than others. I find myself shopping mostly at Frys, Fresh & Easy and occasionally Sprouts if they have a good deal on produce
There are about 5 that I alternate with. 2 by work, 1 on the way home from work, 1 by home, and 1 by BF's house. Depends who has what, where I am, and how much time I have

None in town, nearest is 30 mile round trip. Nearest super market is 100 miles round trip. A little far to walk!

There are 3 large + others. I go to the same Sobeys store unless there is a good sale on produce at one of the other stores worth making an extra stop for.

Several of the same brand name. We have about 3 brand name stores. I agree it is hard trying to find the best deal of the week. I go to what I know

I have about 5 major ones in a 5 mile radius (6 if you count Walmart)) and where I stop depends on what I need. If I do other shopping, it's Walmart, and maybe a Giant.Other errands on the opposite side of town.....it's Foodland. I have 2 grocery outlets I will hit FIRST, about 6-7 miles away. I live alone, so it's more of a 'pick up what I need' thing.

I go to Super Target the most. Cooper's and Cub sometimes and Lakewinds when I want a great selection of gluten free products. We also go to Costco when we want to stock up on items. Rainbow and a Super Walmart are also close but I rarely go to them.

I live in Chicago and work in the suburbs I shop at so many stores it is insane. Each has something I like about it. Meijer is handy. I like shopping in a lot of small ethnic stores that aren't chains. I can get really good deals there that I would pay an arm and a leg for at Whole Foods or someplace like that.

We have many sources for groceries here as I live in a city. My favorite for produce is Costco.

There are lots of places to get food in my neighborhood in the city where I live, it's amazing. I mostly shop at one local market, although there are several that I can choose from. There is also a farmer's market if I get up early enough, and a large chain grocery all within walking distance. The local market has the edge because it's easy to get small amounts of produce - I can buy one carrot instead of a whole bag of carrots, for instance. Since I'm shopping & cooking for only two, that saves a bit of money, nothing goes to waste, and I can introduce a lot of variety easily.

I live in a small town and we have had 2 stores for years. Now Walmart has come in and the stores are hurting. Where does Walmart gets its produce---it is always old and has gnats flying around them.

We have one full-service grocery store in town plus one butcher shop, one bakery, a small local shop which has excellent produce and meat, but not all the staples, plus WalMart which in our town doesn't have any fresh produce. I comparison shop the ads in the local papers, then make a list by store.

mainly Cub, but buy at Walmart & Walgreen's occasionally
I randomly go to two grocery stores that are across the street from one another. Both have decent produce sections and I haven't put the brainpower into determining which store I should go to if I'm after something specific. One is a bit better for chicken, the other a bit better for pork. Certain items are only available in one store but not the other, and I happened to discover that the one store had a gap in the availability of dairy products.
I recently found a third grocery store that looks like it might be best for beef, has a small produce section, but seems lousy for healthy dry goods.
I only grocery shop at the super-everything store as an afterthought to whatever I went to the super-everything store for... Or if we need coffee.
