“Amazing store for many reasons”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2013

This store reminds me of Whole Foods. Great selections and reasonable prices. We were able to find everything we needed on our trip here. We also ate almost every meal here since it was right across from out motel. They have fresh bakery, prepared foods, coffee bar and soups. They also have a nice restaurant where you can sit and eat your food.

“Go Before 10 a.m. and You're Good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013

Fresh everything! Prices aren't usually much more than any other grocery store, particularly for the staples. They have fresh meats and a huge selection of produce.

They've finally redesigned their parking lot, so it's not as bad as it used to be. It's hit or miss as to whether you get friendly people or not, but if you go before 10 a.m. any day of the week, you're at least less likely to run into people who can be real jerks in the parking lot or with their carts. Love the self-checkout!

“The best grocery store around.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2013

Wegman's is the go-to place for anyone who is looking for quality, diverse food. This is the only place we go when we are looking for produce. The cafe food is excellent and many cultures are well represented. Unfortunately, it can become quite crowded, especially when work lets out in the late afternoon/early evening. However, I've found that by 8:00 it empties out.

“Best Selection of Fresh Food and Meats”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2013

Produce selection is vast and fresh, appears just harvested; bakery also has an excellent selection of fresh wholesome grained breads and sweets if so inclined; the meat and seafood departments have great selections and staff answer any questions regarding cuts for cooking. Overall, just a wonderful experience to shop there.

“How can you not like Wegman's?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2013

The "food court" at Wegman's continues to evolve, with so many options ... the products are always fresh and tasty. I especially like the efforts to provide more organic and natural ready-to-eat items.
