Conveniently located in South Berkeley, Berkeley Bowl is one of our all-time favorite grocery stores. It has everything you could ever want. The store carries a large variety of fruits and vegetables at a low price, as well as many bulk items. Berkeley Bowls’ poultry and perishable goods are on the pricier side, but they’re definitely worth the quality. This is the perfect place for vegans, as it has a wide selection of vegan options.

Ah, yes. Trader Joe’s is the holy land of extremely cheap snacks and frozen food items. This is the place for you if you love snacks (which is everyone). They also have fairly cheap poultry.
