    Three total, but one of them gets 90%+ of my business. I value my time more than I value saving a few bucks. On major purchases, where savings can be substantial, I do a lot of research before buying and often shop online. But for food, the savings generally aren't enough to justify driving from store to store burning up my gas and my time.

      I get my food from two places, soon to be three.
      Pastured eggs come from a farm through my stepmother's boss.
      Everything else comes from Central Market (sort of like whole foods, but what it should be like--tons of fresh fish, grass fed beef and lamb, pastured dairy, and a whole lot less of the packaged stuff).
      As soon as the new freezer gets here, we're ordering half a cow from another farm.

      The non-primals in my house get half their food from the above and the rest from Walmart.

        I live in New York City, so I order groceries online that are delivered. Get most of my meat and produce there.

        I use Whole foods for specialty items and when anything is a good deal there.

            When I lived in Brooklyn, my family ordered from Fresh Direct. They have grass fed stuff. We didn't really take advantage of it, though--back then, we mostly ate waffles, diet ice cream, and fake meat.
