great place to shop. i recommend it to everyone i know or even don't know!! it is so much cheaper than s&s and shaw's, much cheaper. ! i know they have quality everything , even their own market basket products are good. you want to save, then go there to shop. you want to cry after you shop elsewhere, then your crazy!! yes, the crowds can be annoying, but how long does it take to shop? when i come out of a store with 20 bags of grocery's for 100 bucks, apposed to coming out of s&s or shaw's with 10 bags for 100 bucks...then i would rather put up with the crowds.people are rude no matter where you go,not because it is market basket itself!! sure every grocery store has it's faults whether it be the employees or the management or even the shoppers, but hey, all in all i rate them a four star place to shop!!
