Metropolitan markets have a great selection of fresh produce, meats and groceries. Often they bring in one of a kind seasonal items - copper river salmon, wild mushrooms, charentais melons etc but prices can be high.
Occasionally they have good value priced lines but there seems to be a deliberate policy to switch customers to higher priced lines -for example they dropped carrying much of the lavazza espresso line in favor of other higher priced lines. Net effect is that prices are comparable to whole foods.
Staff are friendly and knowledgeable about their product lines for the most part.
