STOP READING THIS IF YOU ARE SQUEAMISH ABOUT EXPIRATION DATES!!!!
Ok, just warning you. That order of business done let’s talk about TOWN TALK. What a gem – oh what a foodie find! My frugal lady friends kept talking ’bout Town Talk at 121 North Beach St. Well let me tell you, not for the faint of heart. It is a warehouse full of fresh and non -perisible foods that are purchased:
- Dry Groceries
- General Merchandise
- Insurance Claims
- Discontinued Inventories
- Warehouse & Freight Damage
You need to look closely at the expiration dates. Now Wendy gets the two-day-set-to-expire greek yogurt and freezes it. She got a case of “central market carrying brand” for a dollar. I purchase cheese – they have fancy blues, feta, brie, TGIF queso (DO NOT RECOMMEND – I still have “orange cheese” stains on my counter), etc. First time a did not check the dates and the brie was…WELL past it’s prime, but the next time I got a wheel for 0.99.
They sell thier own bulk – rice, paprika, ravioli (delious in the freezer section), flour, chicken nuggets, hamburger patties. These are hit and miss.
I have also seen: Cheesecake factory cheesecake (frozen) – $6.00
Owen Italian sausage – $1.54
Kefir smoothies – 0.99
Organic mushroom and sun-dried tomato flatbread pizza – $2.00
Burt’s Bees Baby soap – $1.99
Kalamata Olives snack pack – 0.59
Beautiful T-Bones for the Bar-B-Q – $8.00 for 3 big steaks (2.5 lbs)
Acai frozen juice – 0.99
5lbs of premium sour cream – $2.00
Check out this Facebook Site that users update on what is available.
It changes everyday
It’s kind-of dirty in a warehouse, cheap food way – but so are many of the Krogers and Fiestas I have popped in on.
They also occasionally have fresh produce – they had eggplant there – I don’t know how much it was – I don’t really like eggplant or baba ghanoush.
SO check it out, if you can. I recommend it highly!
