How would you describe the availability and cost of groceries and household supplies relative to your home country?

Wonderful. We only go to the base for some ethnic food, dog food and cat litter. Local produce and meats, cheese cannot be beat and are much fresher. There are small grocery stores everywhere so shopping is quite easy. - Sep 26, 2017
Similar to Washington, DC (in other words, somewhat expensive). You can save about 10 percent by shopping at the Navy commissary. - Jul 8, 2009
