Tampa Area Groceries and Markets

When you rent vacation homes in the Tampa area, you tend to cook for yourselves more than you would in a hotel.

As enjoyable as dining out is, it starts to add up fast. Cooking at home is convenient, delicious and good for you. Fully-equipped kitchens allow you to eat healthier and save quite a bit of money in the process.

So, where are some of the best places to buy Tampa Bay groceries? Fortunately, our vacation rentals are close to many stores, markets, and grocers for convenient shopping close to home.

Florida Sun Vacation Rentals - Grocery

The Fresh Market

The Fresh Market is an upscale grocery chain with a local twist. This is one of the markets in Tampa Clearwater that has the greatest variety, specializing in local produce, prepared meals, and wine.

The store’s focus is on providing fresh produce sourced from the Tampa Bay area and organic products, both local and international. If you’re looking for a particular spice to complete a recipe, a gourmet sauce, or a homemade jam, this is the place to go. This grocery store also stocks everyday items, has a fresh flower market, and a bakery that does cakes for special events.

The Fresh Market is located in Clearwater at 25961 US-19. It’s conveniently positioned in a commercial area, with plenty of shops and restaurants.

Rollin’ Oats Market

With Rollin’ Oats, your Tampa Bay groceries just got a little healthier. Rollin’ Oats is a quaint, locally-owned and operated grocery store and café in the north end of St. Petersburg.

It has a wide selection of organic products, bulk food, and fresh produce. Rollin’ Oats offers some of the best prices on organics in the area. Be sure to pick up a jar of their fresh-ground peanut butter, and a six-pack of preservative-free beer.

The on-site café serves tasty meals for both vegans and meat-eaters. Grab a wrap, soup, or salad – try a bowl of the tempeh curry – while you pick up food for the week.

Rollin’ Oats is located at 2842 Dr. M.L.K. Jr. N. in St. Petersburg.

Dunedin Fresh Market

This is one of the best places to get fresh produce at reasonable prices.

Its convenient location close to the beaches of Dunedin and Clearwater makes it a go-stop for vacationers in the area. Stop by 390 Patricia Ave. in Dunedin to pick up basic groceries and chat with the friendly staff.

Whole Foods Market

Whole Foods is a great option for those who like both variety and health. This chain of organic, eco-conscious grocery stores has everything you need to complete your vacation menu – and more.

If you’re not in the mood to cook, Whole Foods has an incredible food bar with prepared meals, both hot and cold. Fill up your eco-takeaway container and pay at the cash register.

Whole Foods has a location at 27001 US-19 in Clearwater, and another in the City of Tampa. Both are open daily until 10 p.m.

Walmart Neighborhood Market

Sometimes, you need to go to a store that has it all.

Walmart has not only a wide selection of groceries, but also sells home supplies, clothing, electronics, and outdoor equipment for those small things you forgot to pack. You can even pick up the latest spy novel to hit the shelves, or a cheap DVD for the family to enjoy.

With three markets in Tampa Clearwater – one inland from Old Clearwater Bay, another just off the US-19, and the third a little further south on Gulf to Bay Blvd. – you can be sure to find Tampa Bay groceries at any hour of the day or night.

The Neighborhood Markets are open from 6 a.m. to midnight, and the Supercenter on the US-19 is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
