Surprised about the groceries! although I’ve heard some pretty nasty things about Giant Eagle.. not sure what exactly’s going on lol what do you do? And thank you for all the info!

If you just go to giant eagle you'll pay more yeah. I more actively shop around at different places now. So on a grocery day I might stop at 2-3 places instead of just one. Could be a mix of GE, Aldi, Trader Joe's, and Walmart usually.

Just a word to the wise, the Giant Eagle nearest the location you told us might actually be the worst / most sketchy one in town. You might find yourself shopping at a nicer / better stocked place and busing it back.

😩😩 what about Kuhn’s?

Kuhn's is a no frills 1990 shopping experience, it's limited in selection but fine.

In East Allegheny you will have the North Side Farmer's Market from May - October, which is great.

At least one of the vendors there (Blackberry Meadows Farms) runs a reasonably priced CSA that you can pick up weekly at the market.

1990? The one in Bellevue always plays music from the 50s and 60s. Not sure if they're all like that.

What time do you go?? I've always thought that Kuhn's music is pretty good lol. I've heard them play a wide variety with lots of semi-current songs.

I'm usually there Saturday afternoons. I don't go there very often, so it might have changed since the last time I was there. It doesn't help that most of the customers in there at that time are over 70, so they're probably just playing to their target audience.

Oh, yeah, early in the day can get a little rough haha.
