If anyone has a budget and needs to go food shopping, go to Market Basket. I just spent less than $30 and bought:

  • 2 bags of bagels
  • 2 packs of instant potatoes
  • cream cheese
  • orange juice
  • three sandwiches
  • 2 bottles of seltzer water
  • toilet paper
  • soap
  • 2 bags of goldfish
  • raviolis
  • 2 things of pasta
  • deli turkey

Seriously, I bought all of that and I’m on a serious budget until I get paid next week. Shamelessly promoting Market Basket because they’ve always been super friendly and helpful.

"More for your dollah!"

Neat video from the Eagle a Tribune.

I think that this could be a serious rival to replace the current Market Basket motto.

Oxfam America on learning from the Market Basket case.

Saturday at the Basket.

Well the Basket is definitely back. The first picture is of the 20 open registers when I walked in. By the time I left, every line was full and they were adding extra express registers. (If you have never seen this, at the Chelsea Market basket, I’m guessing the others, too, they have small portable register stations that they haul out and turn on when it gets super busy to get people through the line faster.). They also had a manager triaging people into the most efficient lines.

The Chelsea store had a big pile of Mexican soda on sale—Coke and Sprite in addition to the Fanta. Local wild-caught seafood is also on sale. I took a picture of the curry leaves, because I just saw a recipe that I wanted to try that called for them. When I read the recipe, I thought to myself, where the heck am I going to get curry leaves. I should have never doubted the Basket. And lastly, whole turmeric! Have you ever seen whole turmeric before? I sure haven’t. It kind looks like a pile of giant orange caterpillars.
