Mercadona weekly, with Lidl about once a month and, very occasionally, Eroski (they are the only shop we can find that stocks our favourite coffee, and that is only in the Velez one :roll: ).

Local butcher for meat- always good :D Local greengrocer for the fruit, veg and potatoes- at least then you don´t buy a bag of spuds that go soft after 2 days :x (Supersol spuds last week :x ) Fresh milk for cereals at Mercadonna and bananas from Lidl. We have to go to Eroski for the sugar free lemon drink, other stores do not stock a brand I like (for the tinto verano). Also Mercadonna for the much cheaper sugarfree icecreams :D
I did buy some chick peas at the butchers, hubby put them in the bottom of the fridge, in the cooler drawer, I rescued them and put them in a plastic tub in the cupboard- bad mistake- I should have left them in a dish to ´dry out´ as they sprouted in 3 days cos of the condensation and boy did they stink :(

Carrefour in Los Patios (Malaga), Mercadona, Lidls, Aldi, Supersol - all these are within walking distance from my house and a local farm between Alhaurin de la Torre and A. Grande for some veg and fruit when in season.

I guess I do my bulk shop in Lidl every two weeks, I also get my meat there as it is a franchise and the butcher is local and is very cheap but has marvellous meat. I sometimes go to Mercadona depends what I need, other than that local supermarkets Upper and Coviran and local fish shop and veg shop.

Mercadona online for most thing, fruit & veg from a greengrocer, meat from a butcher, a few bits & pieces ('English' stuff) from Eroski, and the odd delivery from British Corner Shop.com. And OH brings a few choccy treats when he comes back from the UK.
