See What I Mean (Gourmet Food, Great Prices)

For those in the area who have heard about Chesapeake Traders but have never gone, I thought I'd print their food list for this week. It's not a grocery store, so it's not like you can just walk in whenever you want and be able to find unlimited quantities of everything. It's first come, first served. They take only cash or credit cards, not checks. Food comes from various distributors that sell to restaurants, not to grocers, so the quality is like what you'd find at white-tablecloth places or everyday restaurants (Ruby Tuesday, Cracker Barrel, etc) or convenience stores. It's also a great place to stock up on disposable cups, napkins, coffee, snack bars, and holiday quantity food. Check out pecan pies for THREE dollars. You can't buy pecans for 3 bucks. Anyway, take a peek and see and become a believer--er, member. Bring a cooler if you're not going straight home. They supply bags and boxes.

Awesome, I've always wanted to go but never have. I really need to get a freezer for our basement for extra storage. How did you get this list? Is it on a website or are you on their mailing list? If so, how do you sign up?

Kelly said...

What are their opening hours??

Leanne said...

I've always wanted to go, too, but never been brave enough! Perhaps we need to organize a group of newbies :)

Danielle, I went in person Saturday to buy food, and on the way out, spotted their email sheet. Mark T said "you need to be on that list." So I took his word for it. And yes, a freezer would be worth every penny in terms of being able to stock up on meats and frozen foods veggies at ridiculously great prices. We love ours. It's small but adequate.

Kelly, I am not sure their hours. I know they're open WEds 10-2 and Fridays evenings and Saturdays and other days, but that doesn't match what their website site. Here's contact info. I'd advise calling. (410) 420-8544

Leann, they have two ways to shop: "auction" and normal. If you want to try their auction style (which is not really "highest bidder" but "raise your hand if you want this and we'll pass out as many as we have" type thing, I could certainly go w/ you and other newbie on one given night. Otherwise we could meet on a Saturday. It's pretty self-explanatory, but finding it is tricky.
