Best Local Grocery Store

WinCo Foods

Readers' Picks

OK, let's get this out of the way: WinCo Foods is a local grocery store because the company is based in Boise. Surprise! In fact the "I" in WinCo stands for Idaho, along with Washington, Nevada, California and Oregon, where the company does business--but considering there are also stores in Arizona and Utah, shouldn't it be spelled WinCoau? The employee-owned biz has legions of fans in the Treasure Valley, all of whom are more than willing to sacrifice fancy decor for savings. We'll even happily bag our own purchases because operating those moving belts is actually kind of fun. Big props go out to the kickin' WinCo bulk foods section and we love that the store has finally added smaller hand-held baskets for those of us not shopping for an army. Multiple locations,

Second Place: Boise Co-op,

Third Place: Paul's Market,
