Cayman’s supermarkets, in terms of brand range, are very comparable to large North American grocery stores. They carry most major US and Canadian brands, as well as USDA certified meats, UK brands such as Waitrose, lots of fresh fish, meats and a variety of fresh vegetables and fruit.
All of the supermarkets carry organic products, however fresh organic fruit and vegetables from the US have to travel far to get here, unlike locally grown produce. The supermarkets sell very good meat, but the freshness of certain cuts of fish can vary between different stores. Ask when the fish came in and which is the freshest.
Most of the major grocery stores in Cayman have incredible hot food stations for breakfast, lunch and dinner as well as lighter fare at their salad bar and deli.
A few of the stores offer fresh pressed juices and coconut water (straight out of the nut) daily. In addition to making it fresh, many of the major stores have a wide selection of ready made plant-based meals and gluten-free baked goods.
Grocery stores can also be a great one-stop-shop for lunch on the run. You can also pick up a free Cayman Good Taste magazine at most grocery stores. Inside you’ll find a great write-up on some of the top lunch spots in Cayman, from sandwiches at Kirk Market’s gourmet deli to the hot bar at Foster’s.
It is worth noting that all major grocery stores are closed on Sundays, with the exception of the convenience store, Shopright. Here you can find daily essentials, as well as fresh produce.
