ASK US: Does The New Market Basket Have What You're Looking For?

Market Basket officials say they can balance low prices with a wide selection, but we want to put those claims to the test.


For many in Westford, the news that a second Market Basket was coming was certainly not welcome, with folks wanting other chains with reputations for higher quality items such as Whole Foods.

Here at Westford Patch, we want to objectively see whether Market Basket can stand up with other supermarkets when it comes to the having items you want to buy.

So unlike our old Grocery Hunt, where Market Basket won around 60 to 75 percent of the time, today we want to ask you for ideas on higher end items you've found elsewhere, but wouldn't Market Basket, just to see if they have them.

Please e-mail Westford Patch editor Andrew Sylvia at andrew.sylvia@patch.com with the grocery item you'd like Patch to check out at the new Market Basket along with where you found it elsewhere in the Westford area.

Well, for starters.... So Delicious *soy-free* coffee creamer, soy-free yogurts, chocolate, vanilla, regular, unsweetened flavored milks in the half-gallon containers, more than one flavor of ice cream (Hannaford, Wegmans, Whole Foods). Earth Balance soy-free, egg-free Mindful Mayo (WF carries it). Coconut Secret Coconut Aminos (sub for soy sauce, Wegmans and WF). Soyatoo brand Rice Whip (not the soy whip, WF and Wegmans) Authentic Foods multi-blend gluten-free flour (MB only carries Bob's Red Mill products for the most part).

Oh, and quail eggs, which they only have at the Wood St. MB location.

All natural frozen yogurts in big containers (all there are is organic pints); soy ice cream; all natural turkey; sprouted whole grain bread; reasonable quality and price on salt free trail mix (all carried at TJ's but not MB).
