Talking About Town Talk

 

 

 

 

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:

  • Frozen
  • Dairy
  • Meats
  • Dry Groceries
  • H.B.A.
  • General Merchandise
  • Close-Dated
  • Insurance Claims
  • Bankruptcies
  • Close-Outs
  • Overstocks
  • Mis-shipments
  • Discontinued Inventories
  • Warehouse & Freight Damage

Whew!

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!
