Center City Dwellers - Where do you grocery shop? I need recs.

I have to say, as someone who has had little choice but to shop at Fresh Grocer at 40th and Walnut for the last several years, I disagree that the produce selection is fresh. I've seen way too many fruits growing mold and berry containers full of fruit flies there to encourage anyone to buy produce there. Also it's important to know that they run out of produce items pretty frequently, especially on weekends, so it may not be worth the trek from Center City just to not be able to get what you want. A final warning: check expiration dates carefully on ANYTHING you buy there-- I'm not sure whether they purposefully continue to stock expired dairy/beverages/medicines/you name it, but in any case I've seen them pop up on multiple occasions.
