Passover shopping: when? where?

I actually started yesterday, only because I saw the cake mixes on sale. Last year I had to go to 3 stores to find coffee cake - we can't survive without Manischevitz coffee cake! I figured I'd better grab them while I could!
I used to drive about a 30-40 minutes to go to a market that had a full selection. I discovered a closer market, about 20 minutes away, that is complete enough to make do without a major "pilgramage" as I used to call it ;-) However, the local market has been really great about catering (no pun intended) to the Jewish community, and our synagogue bulletin said they were going to have a big selection this year, and please support them. They had a good selection last year, but I had to make the trip to the other store anyway. Since this local store is less than 5 minutes away, I will patronize them again, to encourage them to continue. They even get fresh Empire chicken in for Rosh Hashanah and Passover, and bake round challahs you can pre-order for the High Holidays.
Let's post and try out these new boards!
