Tripoli - Post Report Question and Answers

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

Bread is subsidized, and many staples are very inexpensive. Specialized and ethnic foods other than Arab / North African specialties are hard to find. The fruit and vegetable markets are fantastic. There is not a lot of good milk. Mainly powdered or reconstituted milk that has been irradiated. Baby food and pet food are hard to find as well. You will be able to find beef, lamb and chicken very easily. You will be able to buy flour, sugar, and other baking essentials with no problems. - Jan 2007
