This is a local market with a lot of selection and great prices. Most veggies and fruits are from local growers and are usually fresh as can be. A lot of organic choices too. They also have dairy, wines, bread and other grocery items so you can get a lot of shopping done. They have a great selection of bulk items like nuts, dried fruits, etc....

The bummer is the parking and the attitude of a lot of the shoppers. The aisles are narrow and if it is busy, which it is a lot, it can be a challege to get through them with a cart. People for some reason can be very rude and inconsiderate.

But if you can go around 11am on Wed or Thur it is better!

This is so much more than the Produce Dept of your local supermarket. There are usually so many varieties within each type of fruit or veggie that it is sometimes hard to make a choice. The best deals are outside the building where chefs and restaurants often shop and in the 'last chance' section just inside the store entrance. Earlier in the season I bought a case of overripe apricots for $2 (approximately 16 pounds of fruit) that I used to make jam. Several of the local bread bakeries stock their goods here as well (Acme, Grace, Semifreddi among them). Sometimes the parking lot can be quite an obstacle course but it is well worth the trip to shop here.

This place has some of the best fruits and veggies that I've seen outside of a farm or farmer's market. The prices are quite reasonable. I bought white nectarines the other day for .99 a pound. The store is mostly comprised of fruits and vegetables. If you are looking for fresh meat, you will be sorely disappointed. I wanted to buy steak and had to go to Magnini's down the block. Come to Monterey Foods if you are looking for well priced, beautiful produce

PROS: Great produce
CONS: No meat, rest of store kinda old looking
