Richmond Scores No. 1 in Grocery Stores

Study says more per capita than anywhere in the United States.

Posted By on Tue, Oct 13, 2015 at 9:47 AM

To no one’s surprise, Richmond ranks No. 1 in the nation for grocery stores per capita, accoding to WalletHub.

How reliable is this statistic? The website says it compiles customer reviews about financial institutions and the services they offer—it’s sort of a Yelp for money. It turned its eye to the food industry to see how cities measure up when it comes to your wallet.

“To find the cheapest culinary scenes in the U.S.,” the website says, “WalletHub compared the 150 most populated cities across two key dimensions, including affordability, and diversity, accessibility and quality."

Besides ranking first in grocery stores, Richmond also ranks No. 7 for the most ice cream and frozen yogurt shops per capita, No.11 in craft breweries and wineries, and comes in at No. 27 for the amount of restaurants per capita.

Overall, Richmond ranks No. 11 in food and drink affordability, diversity and quality. Portland was the big winner, coming in at No. 1. (Not much of a surprise either.)
