Foursquare Tips

  • Shopping here is blood sport, especially right before the early close at 7pm on Sunday nights. Go in with a battle plan and have patience.
  • Come for the ambience.
  • Sunday mornings are probably the best time to go. Actually scratch that - there's never a good time to go. Come out of your corner punching, and protect yourself at all times. This place is crazy.
  • MB is amazing. Great produce, excellent selection of hipster vegan products, quail eggs,and prices that cannot be beat. That said, DO NOT get a cart and don't expect to browse any time after 10:30 AM.
  • Crazy Basket. If you ever find yourself feeling too relaxed, come here for a healthy dose of stress.
  • This place is madness 24/7. It is the most perplexing phenomena I've ever seen.
  • Be aggressive, B E aggressive, for serious otherwise you could end up trapped in the dairy aisle
  • Moxy for the win!
  • Earlier advice is go in the early afternoon. Also try weekend mornings, esp. Sunday when everyone's at church.
  • The deli line takes so long. Grab a ticket and do all your shopping. Bet you'll still be waiting for your number.
  • Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!
  • Super busy but you can't beat their prices.
  • Always a zoo. Lots of great fresh fruits and vegetables. Starting to have more organic produce. Take a breath and dive in.
  • This place is a mad house! Make a strategy plan and execute it to perfection.
  • Do not go sat afternoon .... Locura total
  • Try the one in lexington ma lot less crowed...
  • Avoid at all costs unless it is literally an emergency. Then avoid anyway. This place is thunderdome.
  • Everything is always decently priced. Most of the day it's swarming with people, but when I ring up my groceries I remember why I love it so much !
  • Has a lot of cheap shitty food, but has excellent food too. Don't buy the bread near the front (its all HFCS). Good bread is in the produce area.
  • Try and go during an off hour to avoid the rush.
