Grocery Stores Woodbridge Va: Welcome to my supermarket guide!
Mom's Organic Market - the first in Prince William County - had its grand opening last September. It's like a giant health food store and carries the full line of many well known health remedies, vegan products, and organic brands.

Another supermarket! It may sound like a ridiculous exclamation to many but not to me.
There was a time when shopping for food was more of a "wonder what we'll find today" situation. No need for a grocery list as there were no supermarkets - just sidewalk markets and stalls with unusual produce and mystery meats.
The meals revolved around what we found rather than what we wanted to eat. Every meal was a complete surprise or a repeat performance - we never called them leftovers. It was another meal prepared with the same ingredients - ad infinitum!
Creative cooking was the order of the day and a daily exercise. Years of living "off the land" taught us to either learn to eat what we found or become very creative at preparing the foods we were willing to eat.
In the end, it was much easier to learn to eat what we found...but that's a long story.
Today, with all the grocery stores in Woodbridge, Vigrinia, plus the ability to print free coupons or even go virtual to shop with Alice, I still find myself throwing a meal together using whatever ingredients I find. Who needs a grocery list or recipes?
Weis is gone, and Food Lion has changed its name to Bloom and then back to Food Lion again, but the Giants of the food industry remain.

The Bloom is gone and in early 2012, the stores went back to being Food Lions.
Yes, they are different but there are some very good deals to be found in these markets if you shop at a particular time of the day. They are also showing signs of carrying more of the organic products and brands normally found in the larger grocery stores. Do not forget to use your local grocery coupons and make good use of applicable coupon codes for great deals on area services. Every lit bit helps.
We have three stores in the Woodbridge area:
Got your VIC card?
Harris Teeter® opened in 2007 and it is not your ordinary neighborhood supermarket.
As the "anchor" store in the Shops At County Center shopping plaza [12745 Galveston Court, Woodbridge, VA 22192], it is an upscale type food market which draws residents from center county and from Woodbridge.
The store features specialty foods, a huge deli, a sushi counter, a bakery and a fresh "bread" counter, a "Fisherman's Market", a fresh produce "Farmer's Market", restaurant quality meats, a large wine shop and aisles of gourmet and international groceries.
Along with Wegmans, it is my go-to supermarket when I need unique ingredients to prepare many of our traditional family recipes or when I need specialty foods.
Have you experienced a Wegmans®?
Shopping at Wegmans is an outing...not a run to the grocery store. On the other hand, I've done some serious food shopping in this store using the Wegman's app with coupons.
Don't forget to stop by just for lunch or dinner. We've had an early dinner from the best selection of dishes in the hot bar and from the self-serve islands or a quick snack from the Sushi bar.
We've even used their excellent catering services.
Need details? Click HERE. They're open till midnight...which is a good thing.
Yes, you too can "Shop Smart" in both Aldi locations - both stores carry wine and beer.

They are open for business on Monday-Friday 9am - 8pm; Saturday 9am - 8pm and Sunday 10am - 5pm
Woodbridge has a surprising number of international food markets. Woodbridge, Virginia is also home to one of three Global Food LLC markets!
These are not your typical large supermarket but smaller specialty food markets which usually include a restaurant.
We have not discovered them all but I do know where to go when I need some great kebabs, a naan fix or the freshest ingredients for any recipe from our neighbors to the south.
