Wegmans [http://www.wegmans.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/StoreDetailView?langId=-1&storeId=10052&catalogId=10002&productId=347822], the largest grocery store in Ithaca, has a very large selection of specialty and ethnic foods, and has a large food court-like "marketplace" where ready-made food ranging from pizza to sushi can be purchased and eaten in the pleasant on-premises eating areas. A tourist experience of its own, like the Wegmans around New York State.

The other main grocery store chain in Ithaca is Tops [http://www.topsmarkets.com/StoreLocator/Store_Detail_S.las?L=525&S=]. Tops is smaller and has less selection than Wegmans but is favored by some residents for just that reason.  Tops arguably has a better selection of foreign food than Wegmans. Most grocery stores in Ithaca are open 24 hours to serve the college market, although the P&Cs tend to close at 10 or so. There is also an Aldi that sells deeply discounted store-brand foods with limited hours and no free grocery bags.

Greenstar [http://www.greenstar.coop/] is a food co-op on the west end of town and is open to everyone. They offer a good selection of organic produce and bulk dry foods. Also check out their smaller location, Greenstar Oasis, in Dewitt Mall (near Moosewood) just off the Commons. If you're vegetarian and/or looking for organic selection, this is a great place to shop.  It also has its version of the "marketplace" in its deli section where prepared foods are offered to either eat-in (there is a dining area) or take out.  It is the only grocery store to offer fresh baked vegan desserts (which are VERY good).  Here you will pay for the higher quality since it can get a bit pricey.
