Where to Buy Groceries in Bali

For those who want to prepare their own meals and snacks in Bali, grocery shopping is super easy. 

There are loads of big, branded supermarkets as well as the local pasar (markets) for affordable, fresh produce.

The local pasar typically have a wide selection of locally-sourced produce like fruits, vegetables, meats, and spices. Prices at the pasar are usually considerably lower than at grocery stores, and the atmosphere is lively and bustling. The downside of shopping at pasar is that it can be difficult to find items that are not locally grown or produced. There may also be a language barrier making things more difficult. 

Grocery stores, on the other hand, stock a variety of local and international groceries. There stores are usually more expensive than pasar, but they have the advantage of offering a wider selection of items. Grocery stores are also well-stocked with packaged and non-perishable items, such as canned goods and snacks.

There are super large supermarkets, local supermarkets and corner convenience stores where you can pick up last minute snacks and items.

Bali is can be very eco-conscious, sometimes, and has a whole host of eco-friendly, bulk stores and wholefood shops. These are great for stocking up on pantry essentials.

In general, every type of store has its advantages and disadvantages. Local pasar has a great selection of locally-sourced items at lower prices, but may not have items from outside of Bali. Grocery stores have a wider selection of items, including imported items, but are typically more expensive. 

And now, where are these grocery stores in Bali?

5 Helpful Tips for Buying Groceries in Bali

Buying groceries in Bali is super easy and convenient when you are trying to stick to a budget.

Most stores have a wide range of products at reasonable prices. But here’s a helping hand just in case;

  1. Research local supermarkets: There are a lot of supermarkets in Bali, so it’s important to do a bit of research beforehand to find the ones that best meet your needs. Check out online reviews, ask locals, and even ask your villa or hostel staff for recommendations. There are supermarkets that specialize in organic, local or imported products, so take the time to find the one that best suits your needs.
  2. Shop around: Bali supermarkets are quite competitively priced. If you have the time, it can be worth shopping around for the best deal. Prices can vary significantly depending on the store, the item and even the time of day, so it pays to do a bit of research and shop around.
  3. Stock up on staples: Bali has some fantastic fresh produce, so it pays to stock up on staples such as rice, noodles, spices, and canned goods. That way you’ll always have something to cook with, even when you don’t have time to shop.
  4. Check the best before date: As with anywhere, it’s important to check the best before date of the products you buy. This is especially true if you’re buying imported products, which can sometimes have shorter shelf-lives than local ones.
  5. Buy in bulk: If you’re in Bali for an extended period of time, it can be worth buying in bulk. Many supermarkets offer discounts for larger purchases, so you can make huge savings if you buy a lot of the same item. Just make sure you have enough storage space in your accommodation.
