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

Roughly equivalent. Nothing like an Aldi or Whole Foods here, though. There are lots of farmers' markets to choose from or locally-sourced beef, but we get everything from the standard grocery stores. Food diversity options are readily available. Not so much in the sense of Chinese food as how you think of it in the USA, but lots of Thai, vegetarian, middle eastern food options. There are also plenty of pizza shops, French fries with gravy, etc. - Sep 2020

Maybe not a wide range of specialty or ethnic foods, but if you hunt you can find even those. Chicken is surprisingly expensive. - May 2018

good selection but more expensive than in US - Feb 2010
