Trader Joes: my favorite store ever. Can’t find everything you want, but it is like an abbreviated “Whole Foods” without the high prices. Great fresh flowers and organic produce.
Shoprite: one off of Main Street and one off of Morris Ave. I used to shop in the smaller one off Main Street when I lived in S.Orange. Never any crowds and had everything I pretty much needed for my family.
Kings: off Morris Ave. Much bigger than Maplewood and has everything you need but more expensive than Shoprite.
