    More than a a grocery store, Russo's is an experience. Fresh flowers, an array of equally fresh produce, local dairy and eggs, pastries, prepared foods, cheeses and meats. http://russos.com/index.html

    Fantastic and extensive produce selection. Cheaper than Whole Foods too. They also have cheeses, cold cuts a bakery as well as a gardening center with all kinds of flowers and plants.

    Correct me if I am wrong but I think they get new shipment every Thursdays! Avoid weekends- lines are unbelievable! Try the Asian sausage in meat section among other things! Great cheese section!

    I'm obsessed with the strawberry Napoleons- obsessed. I love Russo's and stop in several times a week for lots of delectable goodies. Best selection of fruits/veggies in the area!

    Candy land of produce. Best herb and lettuce section ever. It gets crowded and you may get stuck in a shopping cart traffic jam with a child having a meltdown.

    Russo's makes me anxious, but their produce prices are super reasonable. Grab some vegetables you've never heard of, and sort it out when you get home!

    If you come on a weekend, bring extra patience. It's worth every cart collision. Best produce; best meat (albeit limited selection); best cheese.

    Best cheese counter ever! Don't miss the fresh pasta on the side as well, there are many hidden items everywhere if you look.

    Cheese selection is great. Also a fan of metch - a bulgar salad with scallions & tomatoes & peppers. Yum!

    great place! be cautious of the baked goods though...I bought a few such as the Apple pie and they re-labeled all of them with a fresher date. they would not refund either

    Delicious prosciutto San Danielle. They slice it perfectly and protect each piece. It's a lot of work, but they consistently do it right! Mmmmm

    The best, freshest and cheapest produce in all the land. However, it's always busy and the aisles are small. So PLEASE, be considerate of others.

    Try to avoid coming here during peak hours, the place gets packed and can make for a frustrating shopping experience.

    Don't park in the main lot. Go to the Russo's extra parking area in the back. It's has much more room (and less beeping!).

    Watch the prices. For no reason, an everyday item price seems to go out of whack. Today, $3.98 for cauliflower. Huh?
