Need more recommendations? Combine both!
Bring huge sandwiches from the Subways (1604 Washington Avenue, phone 305.531.5855) or any take out restaurant for people who like eating out, get a vine from the local supermarket (yes, in South Beach most of the supermarkets sell liquor) and have a party at home! Bon Appetit!
There are a few small grocery stores within walking distance from the beach plus two big Publix supermarkets where you can find practically anything. Just hop on a local bus, pay 25 cents, and in 10 minutes you will be in front of Publix super store. By the way, taking a little shuttle bus in SOBE can be a fun experience as well!
And for those who love organic food, there is the Whole Foods store on Alton Road. More on Supermarkets Locations...
Don't forget the Farmers Market on Lincoln Road. The Farmers Market is open every Sunday, rain or shine. It offers fruits and vegetables, cheeses and baked goods, honey, nuts, fresh flowers and more.
