Baltimore people, do you have good suggestions on where to get good deals on groceries? I read in the frugality and finances forum of all these people who get amazing deals on groceries at the scratch and dent stores, discount food shops, etc.....  I find the local shops (safeway, giant, etc...) to be kind of on the pricey side, but havent' found any good alternatives..., the best I've ever done is Sprawl-Mart. (which i'm not a big fan of)   Any supermarkets that are good for basic food items: noodles, rice, conventional produce,etc...

I like H-Mart in Catonsville for produce, but it's not worth the trip if I'm not already in the area. I also buy a lot of our canned goods and such at Aldi, there are several of them around the city and surrounding areas.

A food store I would luuuvv to see around here is an Amazing Savings Market ( They're a close-out store that sells close-dated shelf goods and toiletries (mostly from organic and health-food retailers) as well as discount fresh organic produce, local dairy, meat, and eggs. Let me just say that I stocked up on Kiss My Face products when we were visiting family at Christmas---they were 75% off retail!!


Seems like this make a great business opportunity in this area!

i also go to the H-mart in catonsville. last week they had red peppers for 0.79/pd!  and their stuff in good. the only veg i don't like from there is celery. i live in columbia, so it is worth the 20 minute drive.
