    Shop Now
    Amazon for random stuff
    Middle eastern grocer for spices & tea & coffee
    Key Foods for grassfed milk, meats on special sale
    Union market, Italian cheese shop for organic cheeses & freshly made mozzarella
    Little India for huge containers of fresh cheap spices & coconut oil.
    Chinatown for random Chinese things I can't find elsewhere and giant tubs of kimchi
    Butcher shop for grass fed meats, marrow bones, neck bones, offal, saukerkraut
    Trader joe's for kerrygold, coconut milk, random food items, bananas, cheese, blueberries.
    Korean grocer for precut fruit at cheap prices.

    Most of this is within a .5 mile radius so I just take strolls to get stuff almost daily. Counts as part of my slow moving.
    ------
    HCLF: lean red meat, eggs, low-fat dairy, bone broth/gelatin, fruits, seafood, liver, small amount of starch (oatmeal, white rice, potatoes, carrots), small amount of saturated fat (butter/ghee/coconut/dark chocolate/cheese).

    Major stock up two or three times/month at Sacramento Natural Food Co-op. Sometimes in between.

    Whole Foods maybe once a month if I am in the neighborhood.

    Safeway or a local chain a few times/month when I need something quick or want something non-Primal, like real mayonnaise (which I eat some of each week), organic peanut butter spread, liverwurst (if I can't get to WF to buy natural), pork rinds (yes, I know they are Primal but the co-op doesn't carry.), etc.

    Costco once every two or three months when I go there for household products.

    Trader Joe's once or twice a month for pastured cheese, cheap wine and whatever else strikes my fancy.

    Grocery outlet for avocados and organic beef, chocolate
    Trader Joe's for wild fish, bacon, eggs, frozen berries, and macadamia nuts, cocoa powder, and plenty more.
    Whole Foods for steak and duck eggs, yogurt
    Sno-isle Co-op for raw dairy, duck eggs, yogurt and a few other odds and ends
    Fred Meyer for some stuff.
    QFC for gelatin, tea sometimes
    Big Lots for canned fish, just read every label!
    That's all I remember right now, there's probably more...
    Steak, eggs, potatoes - fruits, nuts, berries and forage. Coconut milk and potent herbs and spices. Tea instead of coffee now and teeny amounts of kelp daily. Let's see how this does! Not really had dairy much, and gut seems better for it.

    I'm lucky enough to have a large farmers/fresh market close by so we visit that often for fish, fruits and veggies.
    The supermarket here are very limited in choice. We have like 6 different supermarkets all with in easy distance but not many sell proper whole foods. So it's hunting in there...
    Besides that in the city we have a supermarket that only sells whole foods but getting there is a bit difficult but maybe I'll visit it next week to get some variaty in the pantry

    You forgot the local Ukraine market once a month for coconut milk (and sometimes green tea, dragon fruit, sweet potatoes, or coconut water).

    Don't go to the big mega supermarkets in UK , can't stand them.

    I go to 1-3 different farmers markets each week, 2 different butchers, 1 fishmonger & 1 Greengrocer & Wholefoods or planet organic for other items such as rice, seasonings & bits n pieces.

    2 stores. Most food is bought at Kroger. We go to Earth Fare mainly for the milk, nuts, water and whatever veggies we want to give to our daughter.

    I go to the local Korean store about once a month for random ingredients that I've run out of or that I'm craving.

    Kroger and Tom Thumb for most things, but then Sprouts for a few specialty items.
