Which Supermarkets In NJ Are Among the Best in the Country?
If you listen to me on Chris and The Crew, you may know that prior to the coronavirus pandemic, I ate out a lot. I mean, like "sometimes a couple of times per day" a lot. But the pandemic forced me to start making my meals at home (which also meant shopping for groceries).
Maybe that's why I was interested when I say foodandwine.com post a list of "The 10 Best Supermarkets in America."
Of the 10 supermarkets chosen by foodandwine.com, 4 have locations in New Jersey (and I've actually been to all of them at least once).
Coming in as the second-best supermarket in America, according to foodandwine.com, is Wegmans.
This is one I could have predicted based on Wegmans' reputation and personally, it's definitely one of my favorite supermarkets.
Wegmans has 9 locations in New Jersey, including stores in Princeton, Mt. Laurel, and Cherry Hill.
The next highest rated supermarket chain with stores in New Jersey was Lidl. Foodandwine.com placed it at #6 on its list.
Lidl is a German-based company that has just recently started expanding into the U.S. They opened a store in Cherry Hill earlier this year and although I was only in there once, I was definitely impressed, especially with the appearance of the store and the number of offerings in its bakery.
Trader Joe's and Costco were the 2 other supermarkets with locations in New Jersey that made foodandwine.com's list of the best in America. Trader Joe's placed at #8 and Costco placed at #10.
