Grocery Stores, Supermarkets and Minimarkets:

Best Overall convenience:

Small Grocery Store (Minimart):

Lee's Fruit & Vegetables is very well organized and stocked grocery store located just a block from the Grove St. Path station.

You can find most grocery related items here. However it is small and you won't find every brand name here. For a full selection of other items we recommend a supermarket.

View it on google maps here:

309 Grove St, Jersey City, NJ 07302

Best Overall Supermarket Chain:

ShopRite is a supermarket chain with brand-name & house-label groceries, a bakery & a deli.

It does not contain a pharmacy, view it on google maps here:

400 Marin Blvd, Jersey City, NJ 07302

Best Asian Supermarket Chain:

99 Ranch Market is an Asian supermarket chain carrying imported specialty foods plus meat, seafood, produce & baked goods.

It has a very large selection at good prices. You can find anything here.

420 Grand St, Jersey City, NJ 07302

Near Liberty Harbor (50 Regent St):

Liberty Mart is a small convenience store in the Liberty Harbor District, it is OK.

225 Grand St, Jersey City, NJ 07302

Newport Centre Mall

Newport centre mall is not an outlet mall. It does have some competitively priced stores but no outlets. It's a nice place and an experience unto itself. It's a great way to spend a day indoors if you want some good food court comfort food, window shopping and movies.

30 Mall Dr W, Jersey City, NJ 07310

Pharmacy and convenience store:

Best overall!

Look no further for an all encompassing essentials list and pharmacy located at the entrance to the Grove St Path station:

Duane Reade is a Drugstore & pharmacy chain selling products including cosmetics, vitamins & mini-mart basics.
