Chances are, you've got a favorite grocery store. Whether it's the employees, the childhood nostalgia of a hometown market, or the unique products that make yours great, everyone seems to have that one grocery store they're obsessed with.

Jaya Saxena joins us to lay out her theory, and then we hear from Eater's editors about their favorite places across the country. Did yours make the list?
