"They were so relaxed and shopping for Thanksgiving dinner at the local village market," Brittany Valente, 25, told NBC News. "They were so nice talking to everyone, wishing them happy holidays and at one point, Hillary said, 'We must stay strong together no matter what. Thank you for your support.'"

Valente, who said she has seen the Clintons around town before, said running into the family is always special.

"She was very happy, relaxed-looking," Linda Bosco, who also snapped a photo with the former presidential candidate, told The Telegraph. "She was with Bill, Chelsea, Marc, and her two grandchildren. The store was crowded with people picking up their Thanksgiving orders. She was very cordial, talking to people and taking a few photos, but was concentrating on her grandchildren as the store got more crowded."

Grocery store owner Vinny Milazzo said that the Clintons have been regulars since 1998.
