The cost of basic items including milk, eggs, butter, and cheese have increased drastically in Montana and across the country. A cart full of groceries used to cost around $200, but now you can only get 3 or 4 bags full for that amount. Many Montana residents had to rethink the way that they shop for groceries due to inflation.

Two of the most affordable grocery stores in Montana include Town & Country Foods and WinCo. Both stores are employee owned. You may have to bag your own groceries at WinCo, but as a result, the prices you'll find on the shelves are lower. T & C has been serving Montanans since 1966.

Kroger and Albertsons recently announced a merger with C & S Wholesale Grocers, and sold off a number of grocery stores across the country, including in Montana.

Drumroll please....The folks at Delish released a list of the most expensive grocery stores in America, and only one of them has a location in Montana. So, what is the most expensive place to buy groceries in Montana? The answer is Whole Foods. If you're wondering why Whole Foods is more expensive that most other grocery stores, here's the reason it was included on the list.

There’s a reason why Whole Foods is often referred to as “Whole Paycheck.” Since being founded in 1980, Whole Foods has earned a reputation for being one of the most overpriced grocery stores in the country.

You may pay more for groceries at Whole Foods, but there's a good reason for that. Most of the items you'll find in the store are organic. The store takes pride in selling the highest quality natural and organic foods. Since being purchased by Amazon in 2017, prices at Whole Foods have decreased slightly, but groceries still cost more on average. The only Whole Foods location in Montana is in Bozeman.
