The two largest fresh produce and general food outlets in Majuro are Island Pride Supermarket, next to the capital building in Delap, and Payless Supermarket in Uliga south of the Court House. Both stores have produce flown in weekly and shipped in either monthly or twice a month. If the fresh produce shelves are looking a little bare, ask one of the staff when the next shipment is due. Island Pride has a smaller store in Long Island. All these stores carry an extensive range of canned, bottled and dried goods from the United States, Australia and Asia. They also carry US and Australian wines, beers and liquor. To get an idea of product range and costs, below are full page advertisements that were published in the Marshall Islands Journal.

EZ Price Mart in Uliga has some great canned and dried food bargains and is a great place to buy cans of olive oil, whole wheat pasta and other good-for-you products. Crazy Price Mart, which is opposite the Flame Tree in Delap, has a mixed range of food. Many of its products come from Australia. There are also a number of Asian supermarkets on island that also carry fresh produce as well as a variety of other products, many not so easy to define unless you can read Chinese, Korean, or whichever language they are in. These include Cost Price in Uliga (look for the bright yellow building with a mural of the reef on the northern side) and Formosa in Uliga and Delap.

If you want to buy food in larger quantities, Island Pride Supermarket and Pacific Basin Payless both have wholesale divisions. Scattered around the island are a number of ‘mom and pop’ and smaller Asian stores that generally carry a mix of canned and packet food, household items, and clothes.

Food (and other) bargains can also be found at Division 7 Twelve stores in Uliga and Rita (the Uliga store often has fresh fish in a cooler). The gas station Ace’s One Stop, near the capital building, carries some great New Zealand wines as well as powdered milk and a small range of other groceries. It also has coolers of fresh fish (and sometimes lobster) outside the main door.

If you’re after bunches of local bananas or coconuts, try Lucky Store next to the College of the Marshall Islands on the back road in Uliga.
