Your next best bet is Dominican-owned La Rosa Supermarket. It’s far smaller than Janet’s, but still has a strong selection of goods. They sometimes even stock some rogue products that you won’t even find at Janet’s, like a delicious cider that appeared in their drinks section one fine day.
Household items and pet food are found upstairs, don’t miss it!
La Rosa is open until 10pm every night, even on Sundays. It’s pretty handy for an evening beer run.
You’ll find La Rosa over on the opposite end of town to Janet’s, across the road from Vagamundo. When the toilet is out of order at Vagamundo, the closest option is La Rosa. It ain’t pretty, but it does the job.
Open: 8am – 10pm every day of the week. Easy to remember.
Super Pola Sosua
Super Pola, or just ‘Pola’ for short, is a large supermarket a little way out of Cabarete, on the way into the next town Sosua.
Pola is huge, air conditioned, and has a whole lotta beautiful grocery options, not to mention a pretty fine bakery (great doughnuts).
Worth the trip, especially if you have a car and need to do a big shop (or if, like me, you enjoy supermarket tourism).
Open: Mon-Sat 8am – 10pm; Sundays 8am – 8pm.
