    Grocery Stores Near Surf Club

    I will be staying in a suite at the Marriott Surf Club, so we plan to do some light cooking for a few meals. Does anyone know if there are any grocery stores near by? Is it within walking distance?

    You will need to take a cab. Plan on $10 + tip each way. Ling & Sons has good produce, fresh meat, fresh seafood sections and more products from the USA. Hong King has great wine, cheese and bakery sections. Depending on how stocked you want your room they are only one block apart so you can go to both easily.
    Aruba where the toughest question each day is "where to dine tonight".

    there is a new grocery store on palm beach rd near wacky wahoo.
    this grocery store is large and very newly opened (june 2010).
    when we were there in august it still was not fully stocked.

    i guess it'll be better stocked by now.

    Kong Fui is the name of the new grocery store in the Palm Beach area and they are open until 8pm on Sundays.

    However, I was there a week ago and they are still not fully stocked. You can find the basics but if you're looking for choices/specific brands then it's better to go to the other grocery stores.
