    I snapped some pics of the bags at SuperFood this morning - I didn't see any of the crates they mention in the pricing picture:

    Those bags are NOT durable but would do the trick for a week or two.

    Don’t they supply the disposable bags or paper bags at the grocery stores, or do you need to buy the reusable bags from the stores? I’m visiting Aruba in a couple weeks for the first time, and will need to do some grocery shopping. Please advise. Thx!

    Pack a couple from home in your suitcase or you will walk out with boxes or you will have to buy them there.

    there are reusable bags for purchase at the groceries.
    the flimsy plastic grocery bags that most grocery stores used/use have been banned in aruba now for a few years.
    we bring a few from home.

    When we were there in February, Ling and Sons had a coupon in one of those coupon books. If you spent $50 U.S I think you get a free Bag.
    Maybe someone else has more info.

    The green bags at the Allambro market are the best, very large and sturdy. However, I stopped using them at home as they tend to pack so much into them (even when asking to pack lighter) my neck issues flare up

    They're like Pam, "but there's still room in the bag".

    Brenda I used to bring my own bags to the grocery but had the same problem. They bag them to heavy.

    The bags you buy at Suoer Foods are quite big. I will pack mine from last year.
