Same price as in the USA and everything is avalable. There are also many grocery stores dedicated to a region, such as the Asian Grocery store or the Brazil one. - Jan 2011

Groceries and household supplies are about 30% more expensive in Canada than the U.S.We drive to Ogdensburg, NY when possible to buy milk for $1.50a gallon instead of $5. - Sep 2010

My advice - do what most diplomats (and many Canadians) do: travel 60 miles to Ogdensburg, New York, to shop at the Price Chopper and Wal-Mart. You'll find better quality, selection and prices. - Oct 2009
