The Grocery Store

While it may not be obvious at first glance what the Grocery Store is about is providing you with discounts on the ingredients for cooking the different dishes you can cook and bake in your oven at home, and discounted seeds for the different crops you can plant and harvest and, in the end, it is all about saving you money...

The Cooking Aisle


The Listing Key below provides you with a list of the items you can purchase here at the Grocery Store along with their stats - bear in mind that the comparative cost or reward may be different for making the same recipe by using the stove in your kitchen rather than buying the discounted ingredients here at the store... Not all of the recipes will be more economical, and not all will offer better XP, but some do!

You will also discover that the ingredients and seeds that can be purchased here are released at different levels than those in the stone/garden at home.

Generally speaking the more expensive the item and the longer its grow/cooking time, the better the profit margin is... While none of these discounts stands out as a major element, when it is viewed over time and especially when it is averaged out over the entire cumulative play time of the game it does add up to a potentially significant figure.

Buying seeds at the supermarket also increases your town's value. The red peppers and the carrots don't because they are too cheap, but each corn bought boosts the value by 1 and as you go up the prices to the more expensive seeds the value goes up by more as well.

The price of the supermarket is going up because as you build more things in your town the price to build things will go up.so there is actually nothing wrong with the system it's just how the game was made.

Why is it that others who have the same freeplay game have to option to buy a supermarket, pet store, car dealership, etc. and why am I not able to see any of that?...

Is it a glitch?.. or does the new update no longer offer those buildings?

Supermarket or grocery store is in the center of the main map. Look at the party boat (it's on all maps and doesn't require building), then look at the pier, then "cross the street" and you arrived at the store! Just remember that before you can access it, you need to build it! Good luck.

Your town construction rises it does not stay the same price because you constructed another thing not the supermarket at that time. Check how much construction is worth for another building its probably the same as the supermarket.

Please do not be rude, what may be obvious to you may not be to others.
