We were very surprised at the selection of baked goods here..key lime pie, orange crunch cake, yummmm! Also before we left for the airport, we decided to try out Jerry's restaurant, located inside the supermarket...surprisingly great food there too... you have to try their "blt" with smoked salmon (??)on sourdough bread. What a strange, but delicious combo!

We stayed in a condo so needed to get our own groceries for the week. I had low expectations going into the store, but was pleasantly surprised at the breadth of the selection. While there was little in the way of organic fruits, the store did have a broader range of healthful items than I expected. They even have a pick-up service so I didn't have to lug my groceries to the car. Kids loved the exotic birds out in the courtyard area. We will definitely return to this store on future visits to Sanibel.

Jerry's is the only comprehensive grocery store on Sanibel Island. The prices are much higher than an average supermarket (e.g., Publix). For example, we bought two six packs of apple cider, two individual servings of key lime pie, and two pounds of corned beef. We were stunned by the $70 price tag. After that visit on our second day of our seven day vacation, we made an off-island trip to Publix to pay more reasonable or expected prices. Paying the $6.00 toll to cross the Sanibel Causeway to reenter the island (no toll to leave the island) was worth the savings from shopping at a typical supermarket.

With that said, Jerry's has a wide selected of goods that you would expect at a typical supermarket. The decor is island-eque and clean. The shelves are well stocked. Overall, the staff are helpful, knowledgable, and seemingly satisfied with their jobs. However, since we've been vacationing here from 1998 to present, we've consistently encountered some staff at Jerry's who are unhappy and unmotivated, and unfortunately it comes through loud and clear in their interactions with customers.

Thus, if you need something while you're on island and cannot or do not want to leave, then Jerry's will certainly have it for you...at a steep price. We suggest using Jerry's as a back up for your needs.

The key lime pie taffy was phenomenal. Oh my. Three trips during our two day stay on the island. The set up was interesting as well.

We had groceries delivered to our condo prior to our arrival at Sanibel Moorings. The charge for delivery is $25. They put all my refrigerated and frozen items away and left us the receipt on the counter. Ordering and prepayment was easy via the website. It was nice after a day of travel with young children to have some start up supplies of food, milk, and breakfast for the next day. We also shopped here a few times during our stay. Key lime pie was delicious.
