    Market Basket, how I love thee.  I swear angels were singing and playing their angelic little harps when I entered through the front doors.  If you live on the Cape, no matter where on the Cape,- Market Basket is worth the trip!

    The thing about Market Basket is their incredibly low prices.  Market Basket’s regular prices are equivalent to competitor grocery stores sale prices.   Now, just imagine how low the prices are when items go on sale!

    For example:

    Market Basket Italian Sausages with Provolone- 6 for $2.76!

    These sausages were not included in the sale flyer.

    Not only were the sausages reasonably priced, so was the rest of meat selection.  My next favorite thing about Market Basket was the variety in product.

    Enoki Mushrooms

    Thai Red Hot Peppers

    The produce section was exploding with exotic items!  I wish I took more pictures for you guys, but I kept having to chase my husband around the store.  He was like a kid in a candy store, which speaks a thousand words because my husband hates going to the grocery store.

    The bakery section, oh my! There was just a world of bakery fresh bread, cakes, muffins, cookies, strudels, corn cakes, and lots of pastries.  All fresh, all inexpensive, and all drool worthy.  I also came across some cake pops while I was gallivanting through the bakery section.

    The Cake Pops were priced at $1.59 each, I’m not sure I would pay that much per pop but I also make my own cake pops so my opinion is slightly biased on this one.  They sure are pretty though :)

    Hubby and I decided that even though Market Basket is somewhat of a drive for us, the extremely low prices are well worth a trip once a month to stock up on meats.  Of course, I’ll be keeping an eye out on Market Basket’s coupon match ups as well.

    Have you been to Market Basket yet? Did you like the store? Not like the store?

      I hated it. Too many unsupervised children running around made my trip miserable.

      I did like the larger organic section, but felt that many of the items my family eats were similarly priced to Trader Joe’s and Stop & Shop – both are much closer to us.

        Bummer :( We didn’t have the unsupervised child issue when we were there, albeit it was might busy. I love Trader Joes but cannot stand navigating through that parking lot, so I only go there once every few months during the off season. I would really like to see Stop and Shop have better sales in their organic section. The S&S I shop at, really needs to re-do their organic section. It’s quite lacking :(

      love, love, love MB!! The store is like eye candy looking at all the amazing food and treats around the perimeter of the store. The prices can’t be beat on most items and as you said, the variety is better. I’m buying produce again at reasonable prices. We now have many fruits and veggies. (not to mention how fresh they are and last longer)I can’t justify the outrageous prices at S& S. I can’t even get over the reasonable deli prices. You can even pick up a HUGE pizza for $9. The only negative is that it’s a distance but worth it!

        OMG, the deli prices were amazing at MB. I kept doing a double take. $3.99 for 1 Lb of deli meat-it was great! he way I see it, there are plenty of empty stores MB could move into down our way :)
