There is a pingo supermarket towards the worms roundabout or you could walk on the road heading down towards Santa Eulalia beach a biggish supermarket on that road, you have a few choices really Lidl or Aldi or continent. Enjoy

That Pingo Doce by the 'Worms' is the nearest large one and would be about 10 minutes walk. The Intermarché on the Santa Eulalia road might be a bit closer depending on which bit of Corcovada and there is a small Minipreço (local discount chain) halfway along.

ALDI and LIDL are nearly two miles across town. Map that may help - www.algarvebus.info/images/roundabouts.jpg Globes roundabout on the right hand side is next to Corcovada.

The one turning right is probably the intermarche opposite erin isle.

The mini preco is Probbly a bit closer turning left out of the apartments and straight over the roundabout walk for a couple minutes and you will see it on the corner of the street. I found recently it had most of the basic things I needed.

The intermarche probably has a bit more choice though.

If you are in the apartments, you are north side of Globes roundabout ... easy to jump on the Vermelha/Red2

giro bus at the roundabout stop (42 and 12 mins) for the main supermarkets at Watches roundabout .. 5 minutes away. You can take the green/verde (20 and 50) to get back to Globes ... or the Red2 (30 and 00) to a stop just south of the roundabout ... from the stop outside Modelo Shopping, which also has taxis ..

Montechoro Intermarche is definitely nearer ... walk up Teixera Gomes to a lane opposite Silchoro hotel .. up there and right past Vila Magna, then left ... it is downhill on the way back, but no more than 5 mins.

There was a small waterpark type site next door and was redeveloped maybe a couple of years ago.
