    Hello All,

    Moved in recently to Baltimore city from philadelphia to do my summer internship at Johns Hopkins Medical Center. I have been groceryless for awhile now...due to my laziness and running back and forth to my old place to fix stuff but anyways.

    I am having a hard time finding a chain supermarket that is easily accessible to public transit (no car unless you want to lend me yours). I am currently residing one block away from the Peabody on Centre and Charles Street. Can anyone point me out an easy way to get to a Safeway, Giant, or any other big chain you can think of; using public transit? Also, if you can guide me thru public transit...is there anyway you can also point out a route to get to a mall or something too...b/c it seems like I am a few dress shirts short now :)

    Thanks in advance and have a nice day.

    I'm pretty sure there is a Wegman's up at Hunt Valley - it's a nice area, so you could go on a weekend. For those of you averse to big box stores, I have included the size of the store at the end of the post, in white. Take the Light Rail all the way up to, obviously, Hunt Valley. There are always the Peapod (by Giant) and ??? (by Safeway) online purchase options. This makes things a bit easier since the store comes to you.

    As for shopping for dress shirts and the like, I don't know what kind of store you like to go to. Again at Hunt Valley are a variety of places to shop. I think the site is http://www.shophuntvalley.com I see it every day on the Light Rail...I can also tell you about their youth escort policy (fairly strict).

    Another option is to head downtown to the Harbor and hit the Gallery. Good number of shi-shi stores there. Might be what you want. I don't know your racial/socioeconmic background, but I'm going to suggest avoiding Mondowmin Mall. I think there is a Subway stop there.

    If you have any more questions, let me know.

    Oh! The size of Wegmans - 140,000 sq feet...yes, that is more than 3 acres...
