Graceway Gourmet

Graceway Gourmet Grocery Store Providenciales, Turks and Caicos

Graceway Gourmet is located in the heart of Grace Bay and offers an upscale shopping experience only a short walk away from Grace Bay Beach and the Island’s many luxury beachfront accommodations. Graceway Gourmet opened in 2009 and provides the community with a high-quality shopping experience. The store features specialty items, natural and organic food items, a gourmet delicatessen, fine wines, stone-baked pizzas, a hot deli serving lunch and breakfast daily, and a java/juice/smoothie bar.

Flavors Of The Turks And Caicos

Flavors of The Turks and Caicos (FOTTAC) offers customers locally-made products that capture the essence of The Turks and Caicos Islands. The store is perfect for anyone who wants to purchase locally made gift items or take home a souvenir to remember their Turks and Caicos vacation. FOTTAC carries an ample supply of locally harvested salts, hot sauces, and an exclusive line of Bambarra Rum products. Bambarra rum is made locally on the Islands and gets its name from the home of the African settlers who arrived in Middle Caicos in 1841 on the wrecked slave ship, Trouvadore.

Graceway IGA

Graceway IGA Grocery Market Providenciales, Turks and Caicos Islands

Graceway IGA Is about a 10-minute drive southwest of Villa del Mar Resort on Leeward Highway and is inside the Graceway Plaza Shopping Center. Graceway IGA opened its doors in 1998 and was initially known as “People’s Choice Supermarket.” Graceway is one of the larger grocery stores on the Island and features products from neighboring Caribbean countries such as Jamaica, Haiti, and the Dominican Republic, as well as some products from China and Japan. When in season, Graceway also sells locally grown fruits and vegetables from Government Farm on North Caicos, one of the few local farms in the country. The supermarket also features a large selection of freshly baked pastries, made-to-order cakes, and food platters. If you’re hungry when you arrive, the store features a deli where customers can order sandwiches and pizza and purchase prepackaged salads.

The Wine Cellar – Discount Liquors

The Wine Cellar Providenciales, Turks and Caicos

Graceway Smart Supermarket

Smart Grocery Store Providenciales, Turks and Caicos

Graceway Smart Supermarket is new to the Island, having opened its doors in downtown Providenciales on March 28th, 2016. The market is approximately a 15-minute drive southwest of Villa del Mar Resort and about a 5-minute drive east of the Providenciales International Airport. Graceway Smart offers customers produce, meat, deli, bakery, grocery, liquor, dairy, and frozen food departments. The store also features a “dollar deals” and special buys section that allows customers to buy lower-priced items.

Other Important Details:

  • Most grocery items sold in local grocery stores are imported. A duty tax is applied to all imported products, and there is the added cost of shipping goods to the Islands. As a result, groceries purchased in Turks and Caicos cost an average of 25-30% more than items purchased in the States.
  • Beer, wine, and spirits can be purchased in most grocery stores. Alcohol sales in stores are prohibited on Sundays in the Turks and Caicos Islands.
  • Fresh local seafood can be purchased for lower prices directly from local fishermen in the central Downtown area near the Town Center Mall. Fish purchased here is approximately half the cost of what is available at local grocery stores. Find more information here.
  • Turks and Caicos allow visitors to bring some food items in personal luggage. Find out more information about what things are allowed to be brought in here.
