Entertaining in the City

I absolutely love entertaining people at my place, be it for a meal or right before heading out on a Saturday night. However, purchasing food in the city is such an enraging experience. With the limited number of stores, there is little incentive for retailers to drop prices to attract business. While Eastern Market is a great place to shop for vegetables on Saturday, during the week – if you work 9-5 – you are tied into paying exorbitant prices during the weekdays at the grocery stores. As I live in the city, I try to drop as much of my grocery dollars in the city, but we really need to get some more competition in the city.

    Mollika! Have you been to Mexican town to do your weekday shopping? You are so close, head down Bagley to Honey Bee Market or to E&L down on Vernor, you will find amazing selections of excellent produce and meats (if you are a meat eater) and all kinds of great fresh spices. All of this for very low prices! Both stores I believe are open until 7pm on weekdays. Without buying beer and tamales, you can get away with a week of groceries for like $30-$40 and that is if you are cooking every night of the week!
