Erie county farms should remove their # from the public since it has been my experience they do not want you calling!! Called just and asked a question that took less than 2 seconds and instead of being polite I was hung up on without an even "have a nice day" reciprocated. Apparently customer business is not needed and infact inconvenient!
Amazing prices for quality fresh food including some ethnic foods. Everything is priced extremely well and because it goes off the shelves so fast, it needs constant restocking...everything is fresh and hasn't sat around forever like at some other places (the employees there are fast, this may add to it appearing hectic but makes for good service). Wide variety of fresh vegetables and fruits. A huge wall of cheeses and many meats/seafood.
Yes (as mentioned by the previous review) it can get crowded at times but this is because their food is so sought after. The meat coolers sometimes seem low but the butcher is prepping the meats right as people shop, everything is cut fresh, all you need to do is ask the meat attendant what you're looking for if it isn't out at the time (that's why he is there) and he lets the butcher know to get it ready while you do your other shopping. Also, though I myself am vegetarian, it is worth noting that regularly they have organic or antibiotic-free chicken at amazing prices. Also, you can pre-order whole pigs or turkeys and such, especially prior to holidays.
My elderly mom loves the store. She has mobility issues and is terminally ill but is more then willing to look past the occasional crowded conditions to be able to shop there and get her quality meats. Me, I go there for the veggies and fruit and I love that they carry ethnic foods/spices :) We drive a whole hour just to get there, it's that much worth it :)
This store is horrible. People are going every which way with buggies, standing in aisles and in front of cases so you can't see what is in them. THey need to put arrows down on floor and have aisles up one down the next then maybe you could shop there. I had to leave. I got 4 things and left could not stand the mess. Couldn't get into cases to shop so what was the purpose of it. ALso they were out of almost all the meat. If you would do something about the shopping mess I would think about going back not until then.
My family wouldnt eat as well if this store wasnot in business.They have the greatest deals you will find. If your worried about it being a nut house....be sure to go right when they open at 10 am. Its not too bad at all the first hour...
