Bread for $25: the most expensive grocery stores in the US

It's no secret that food (and life in general) is now very expensive. The cost of many essentials has skyrocketed, fast food is becoming less affordable, and even celebrities are feeling pressured by their grocery bills. But there are shops where the prices are just going through the roof. Edition Delish compiled a list of such stores.

Inflation has forced many of us to rethink the way we shop. Some refuse expensive ingredients and even completely reduce the amount of food they consume. But the first thing to do to optimize shopping is to choose the right store.

There are many factors that affect grocery store prices. Supply chain, cost of living in an area, quality of ingredients, and competitors are just a few of the variables that can affect your grocery bill.

However, this does not make the current prices smaller. If you don't want to pay $25 for bread, avoid the following places.

Erewhon Market

Celebrities and influencers from Southern California flock to Erewhon - and certainly not for the bargain price. The health food store was founded in Boston in 1966, moved to Los Angeles two years later and has been a neighborhood store for 40 years. It was bought by current CEO Tony Antochi in 2011 and built into a miniature empire with nine stores in Los Angeles County.

Erewhon is known for its outrageously expensive products (like $25 loaves of bread), its tonic bar serving $17 "Hailey Bieber skin smoothies" and its prestigious $200 annual membership. It's a favorite haunt of the Los Angeles elite and hype-loving tourists. But that's far out of the price range for the average American shopper.

Whole Foods

There's a reason Whole Foods is often referred to as Whole Paycheck. Since its inception in 1980, Whole Foods has earned a reputation as one of the most expensive grocery stores in the country. The company has been plagued by scandal after scandal, from selling a $6 bottle of water with three asparagus stalks to a former CEO saying America's obesity crisis was caused by "bad choices and ignorance."

Amazon bought the company in 2017, driving prices down, but Whole Foods is still financially out of reach for many shoppers. And now, with the rise in the cost of living, the store's exclusivity is becoming even more evident.

Acme markets

If you live in the mid-Atlantic and have ever shopped at Acme, then you won't be surprised to see it make this list. The store has been operating for over 130 years and remains one of the most popular chains in Delaware, New Jersey and Pennsylvania.

It is also one of the most expensive. According to a 2022 Consumers' Checkbook grocery store survey, Acme's prices were among the highest in the area and the quality of its produce was among the lowest.

However, Acme's parent company, Albertsons, was recently acquired by Kroger, the largest supermarket operator in the country. Additional resources that come from the Kroger network could potentially drive prices down, but for now, they remain inflated.

Fresh Market

Fresh Market was founded by Ray and Beverly Berry in 1982 after they traveled around Europe and were inspired by all outdoor markets. They now have 159 locations in 22 states and offer high quality products.

Fresh Market sells great products in every department. Stock up on homemade croissants, freshly cut flower arrangements, signature cheeses and luxury private label products from artisans around the world. It sounds like everyone's dream grocery store, but there's one catch: it's expensive. Since most stores are located in affluent areas, it's clear that the main demographic is not the average shopper.

Harris teeter

Harris Teeter is a subsidiary of Kroger with over 250 offices in the Southeast. Founded in 1960, this regional chain is known for its signature ice creams and ready meals.

Harris Teeter is best known for its high quality products, well maintained facilities and friendly atmosphere, but it doesn't come without a cost. According to a recent article in The Charlotte Observer, Harris Teeter sells some of the most expensive products in its home state of North Carolina.
