grocery prices in sosua

How expensive are groceries and what selection can you get. How expensive is the seafood say local shrimp.\Can you get a good selection of vegetables etc. What about anything organic.

Playero is the highest priced place on ALL items including beer. The chicken prices are in pounds. All weighed items in the DR are in pounds at the stores

Shopping for beer at Super super www.surfliquors.com/ or at the distributor in Sosua Abajo should come out to about $1.25 a bottle

Because of the high prices at Playero I try to use it as I would have a convience store back in the US. If i need milk, bread, or eggs because we ran out I will stop there other wise we do all our food shopping elsewhere.

veggies on the main street just down from Super Super liquor store is a small store front for veggies and fruit. She gets fresh stuff Monday and Thursday mornings. Lots of us locals shop there.. I was actually just there this morning. A cantalope melon was 70 pesos there (a bit high this time of year) and a Playero a smaller one was 92 pesos.

For meats there is a german butcher next to the entrance to Ocean Village on the main road. Great stuff.

Fish you can get on most mornings from the guy walking the streets with that early morning's catch.

For a big shop I would go to Puerto Plata to la Sirena and load up. They also have lots of fresh fish, veggies and meats (some imported black angus) at verygood prices.
