Listen up and save a few dollars, or pesos. The local grocery stores in Cancun, Playa del Carmen, Puerto Aventuras and Tulum have a weekly deal day where locals can save on their grocery purchases. Wednesday is the day, and each grocery story chain offers great deals throughout the store. Produce is the main savings, with fruit and veggie deals being the best deal in the town. Depending on the season, we have seen tomatoes as low as 1 peso a kilo, bananas at 2 pesos a kilo, grapefruit, limes, watermelon, you name it….all at great prices.
The Wednesday deal only applies to the larger chain stores, Walmart, Chedrauri and Soriana. This started a few years ago and seems to have stuck, so if you need to shop, save it to the sale day, Wednesday, and save a bunch of pesos on your vacation. YOu will also bump into local residents who will be doing the same thing, so party it up at the grocery store!
