Neither. I prefer my groceries to be from Walmart. But since I cannot afford to do my regular grocery shopping at Walmart, due to being on disability, I get most of my groceries in Aldi. I, on occasion, by small amounts of groceries in Walmart. And I'm not into the vegetarian/vegan fad. I eat a normal diet, which includes meat, dairy, and bread/grains.

rarely go to either. both are expensive. i mainly get food from sprouts farmer's market and aldi. rarely, i'll also go to walmart, a local asian store, costco, and farmer's markets

People LOVE Trader Joe's, but being a chef, I find their stuff overpriced and just not as good as other stores. Whole Foods will 'sometimes' have an ingredient I can't find elsewhere-so that's fine. But as a 'regular' grocery store? No thanks. I get a better price elsewhere.

i use 6 different grocery stores
1. local chain- within walking distance for quick food trips
2. aldi- 29 cent avocados! (sometimes anyway.) i also like their fruit leathers and breakfast bars.
3. another local chain- its a little further than the first local chain but i like it better
4. whole foods- for variety of produce mostly. i'm a bit of a mushroom junkie, i'm talking chantrelles and hen of the woods and lions mane and blue foots and hedgehog and all those tasty varieties that they don't sell at normal grocers, i gotta go to whole food to satisfy my tasty mushroom jones.
5. the asian market- actually, there are 3 different asian markets i sometimes go to. gotta get my dumplings and samosas and from my mushroom list, trumpet royals.
6. natural grocer- various things from them too, like nutritional yeast.

and then of course the farmers market

money is no issue. back in the day i'd wear thrift store clothes, drive a used hatchback and eat very good food. but these days i could afford whatever anyway.

I prefer food I like at a price I can afford..doesn't matter where that is. I mostly shop at Aldi's because that blows Wlamart grocery out of the water on prices and is owned by the same folks that own Trader Joes.

Walmart is all I can afford.

No

To me, a head of cabbage and a bag of potatoes, carrots and onions, are pretty much the same. So the choice is do I buy the same items locally or do I drive out of my way to pay a little more, for the same things that may or may not have come from the same sources (the local produce delivery companies), just to pay more from those places that I have to drive out of my way to get.

So if my ONLY choice were to by organic produce or organic sourced prepackaged foods, Trader Joe's and Whole Foods, might be options if the local, closer stores, didn't have what I needed, at a price I was willing to pay. I have used both stores, and they do carry items I like, but since they are not in my normal commute routes, there is no reason to shop there, other than the times I happen to be near them.

Why would I prefer to pay more for something I could get for less? I mostly shop at local grocery stores.

Whole foods
