I'm finding myself shopping at Food Basics more and more. Food Basics is sort of a budget store, owned by the nice folks at the Great Atlantic and Pacific Tea Company (who own A&P, and others) that seems to cater to a lower-income audience than does say a Whole Foods or Stop & Shop. You'll also often find Food Basics in ethnically diverse neighbors. When a store caters to an ethinically diverse community, you're not only going to find great values, but you're going to find great products that you won't normally find:
Pigs feet? Check. Ox tail? Check. Pork shoulder? Not a problem. Tripe. Got it. Offal of all sorts? Yippers.
Gone are the days of calling Stop & Shop the day before a BBQ and pleading them to save a pork butt before turning them all into sausage. Food Basics always has a bunch of butts right there in the case. Carnitas is only some onions, OJ, and fennel seed away.
