Early morning before the rush. The curated produce section at Whole Foods Columbus Circle in Manhattan.
Of course, early risers and early shoppers get the freshest aisles and best-stocked shopping opportunities. Take advantage of arriving right at opening time for fewer crowds. Are you a chef or do you have a recipe that you need to shop for? This is the perfect time to look for ingredients when you may not be familiar with exactly where they are in your favorite store.
Happy shopping and dine well.
