Shop n Save
Shop N Save is the first supermarket in Fiji to launch it's own app. It's free to download and allows users to check prices for product, to shop online from their mobile phones, and more.
Local Foods and Goods
Fiji's markets are filled with colorful fruits and vegetables. It's customary for the pricing to be by heap, they don't really sell one onion at a time for example. This reflects the sharing culture of Fiji and family meals.
Larger items such as watermelons, pineapples, and heads of lettuce can be purchased one by one. It'll be obvious by sight which items are sold by heap vs which items are sold individually.

Anything imported from other countries such as NZ/Australia/United States, etc is going to be quite pricey. If you must bring imported food on your trip, you can bring it in your checked luggage.
Local beers and alcohol is also much cheaper than anything imported. We would recommend that you pick up any imported alcohol at the duty free shop at the airport before arriving at Fiji.
