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

Availability of groceries is great. Unless you are looking for certain niche items or brands, you can find practically everything here. The quality of groceries is high and the prices are fairly low. - Jun 2022

Very easily available. Prices comparable or a bit higher than the States. - May 2016

Everything is available. Fruits and vegetables are inexpensive. Imported goods are expensive. - Jul 2014

Very good supermarkets, including the french E.LeClerc, which is very complete and cheaper. The Slovene supermarket branch Mercator is everywhere. On Sundays, after 15.00 they are all closed, except for one Mercator in Trzaska Cesta. Beware: Slovenes are very strict with the closure times of their stores! - Aug 2011

Just about everything is available. Mercator, the local supermarket chain, is very nice - well stocked and on almost every corner. Groceries and household supplies are probably a bit more expensive than the US. - Jun 2011

Everything you could possibly want is available here. The best supermarket is Mercator. Hofer is the cheapest. The farmers' market in the town centre is great. Everything is fairly expensive. - Mar 2011

Groceries are higher priced than in the U.S. but you can get just about everything you need locally. There is an Air Force Base in Aviano, Italy with a large commissary and exchange about 2 1/2 hours drive from here. - Jun 2010
