OVERHEARD: Trader Joe's vs. Fairway

Share this Article

With the proliferation of Whole Foods, Trader Joe's, Fairway and even your corner fruit and vegetable vendor, deciding where to buy your mangos and artichokes has become a complicated issue. On StreetEasy, Whole Foods elicits the usual pocketbook complaints, with one commenter grousing, "Whole Foods is cray-zee overpriced. Off the charts, and off my radar." Most posters, though, seem to agree that each venue has some good value items. Many say they hit three or more stores regularly, though they don't say whether they're paying to have it all delivered too. (StreetEasy)
