Groceries

ADVICE ON GROCERIES: Pavilions is the closest market. But, to be honest, it is very expensive with so-so quality selections. If it doesn't meet your needs and you have a car, there are more options just 2 miles inland. No car?...you can bike to A's Gourmet Market, the Sunday farmer market and quality produce on Balboa Island (30 min ride across the ferry).
The closest market, but might not be the best value for you. See other listings.
