How do supermarket prices compare to Brooklyn?
Any cheap supermarkets (somewhat) convenient to JFK?

Wow. That is a lot of pages. I don't have time to read all of it now.

I am going to JFK today and stopping in Brooklyn is not really on the way so I thought maybe I'll just shop in 5T.
If I shop here what store would you say is cheapest overall (if there are a few then the one closest to the airport).

As long as prices are on average within 30 to 50 cents per item more than cheap Brooklyn prices it probably is worth it for me to shop in 5T.

Cheaper in the 5T then brooklyn? HAHAHAHAHHAHAH

You must be joking!

There's no such thing. In fact, I was in krm last week and bought gefilta fish from takeout and it came to $5, amazing. This morning in gourmet glatt, fish from take out cost me $15!! That's not a typo, it was 300% more!! (Ok, pesach time prices go up but by so much?!)

Your best bet would be frankels in far rock https://www.frankelskosher.com/frontend/

But seriously, if at all possible shop in brooklyn.   
If it's not free shipping it's not worth it.
