Lidl is a European chain, founded in Germany in 1973, that first came to the U.S. in 2017. It focuses on high quality, low prices, and efficiency, and it partners with local farms to create products with its own private label, similar to the Trader Joe’s model. Beyond food, it carries home goods—especially but not only for the kitchen—that rotate twice per week. To find the store nearest you, visit
