Ditto, not me personally but the majority of shopping comes from waitrose who took over the safeway in town.

Re: Which Supermarket Do You Use Most Often?

Sainsburys for me - only because my mum used to work there, and I have to do my bit to prop up her retirement fund

Personally, I do most of my fruit/veg shopping at the local greengrocers down the road (as the product is much fresher) and my meat shopping at the butchers nextdoor to them (as their meat is actually traceable). If there was only a proper fishmongers left in the county, I would never have to set foot in a supermarket again.

Why can't we have fresh produce markets like they have in France/Italy?





(...and yes, I do the shopping - mainly because I do the bulk of the cooking)

We have a Farmers Market in town every month

So we are able to stock up on "real" meat but we can't keep the veg. long enough and there aren't any fish stalls

Last week we bought 'sprout toppings' when was the last time you saw that for sale


Tasty

Eh like...never. What are sprout toppings? As far as i can see sprouts are the tops of the plant!

But along the same we always used to be able to buy lambs liver and lambs hearts from our local Sainsburys but not now for quite a few years. And fresh fish is a joke it's been frozen then thawed (I think) and it costs way more than the frozen stuff.

(Remark...looks like another thread about a boring subject that could develop here on AO.

And yes supermarkets are about the only place where you actually meet people...quite enjoy them, including when I'm working at different places getting my sarnies from Safeways and Tesco and walking round the stores to see how they differ.

Re: Which Supermarket Do You Use Most Often?

There isn't a single greengrocer left here in Dumfries. All fruit and veg has to be bought in the supermarkets although there is an occasional fruit stall which sets up in the Summer. It's tragic really as we are all forced to buy rock hard poor quality stuff that supermarket buyers think we all want.

It's mostly tasteless, expensive and irradiated to hell.

Last night was Burn's night up here and traditionally we all scoff haggis, neeps (turnip) and bashed tatties. But we had to eat ours sans turnip as Marks and Spencers wanted, wait for it, 1.30 for a small tumshie!!! ONE POUND feekin' THIRTY for a small turnip!!! Christ on a bike the sheep round here eat them FREE!!!

Rant over. I think she shops at Morrisons. If I'm sent I always head for Lidl (a kind of even cheaper Aldi clone).

Sprouts grow on the stalk...... toppings are the young leaves and stems that grow from stalk.......... Looks like cabbage...... tastes like sprouts but sweeter
