The Best Grocery Store in Las Vegas +A Fake Grocery Store

You might be looking for a grocery store on vacation for many reasons. Maybe you want some snacks for the hotel room, are looking to save money and refrain from eating out at restaurants, or maybe you just want to see the local offerings. No matter what you are looking for, you’ll find it at one of these Las Vegas grocery stores. 

Take a look at this roundup of the best grocery store Las Vegas has to offer in each of the top search categories, plus a few extra options and an overview of the infamous Sin City psychedelic grocery store’s immersive art experience. 

Best Grocery Store on the Strip

Target Grocery

Target Grocery at MGM Grand Las Vegas

Target has several locations in Las Vegas, but the Las Vegas Strip location is a convenient one-stop shop for groceries, liquor, and necessities. More specifically, it is located in the Showcase Mall across the street from Park MGM and just down a bit from Planet Hollywood. 

They have everything from personal hygiene items and clothing to an extensive grab-and-go foods section and all the normal groceries you expect. 

Target Grocery isn’t the least expensive place to do your shopping, though it does beat the high prices you’ll find at the casino gift shops or small convenience stores.

Bonus Choices: 

Whole Foods Market

Like many other grocery stores on our list, there are a few Whole Foods Market locations in the Las Vegas, NV, area. The closest one to the Las Vegas Strip is located in Town Square Las Vegas, which is still on S. Las Vegas Blvd. but is a short drive past the end of the South Strip. 

Whole Foods Market is known for its eco-friendly products and organic foods. They have a wide selection of fresh produce, fresh meat, bakery goods, and more. Whole Foods does not sell liquor, though its wine selection is excellent.  

Vons

Vons store Las Vegas

Though Vons isn’t technically on the Las Vegas Strip, it is still close enough to be convenient as you just have to head east for a few blocks on Twain Ave. 

Vons features a deli, a bakery, florals, a beer, wine, and spirit section, as well as a pharmacy and fuel station. Whether you are looking for frozen foods, fresh fruits, vegetables, or snacks, you’ll find them at Vons.  

Cheapest Grocery Store in Las Vegas

WinCo Foods

WinCo Foods

There are two WinCo Foods locations in Las Vegas, NV, and one nearby in Henderson. The two in Las Vegas are on Decatur Blvd on the north side of town and Washington Ave on the west side towards Summerlin. 

WinCo Foods is employee-owned and known for being one of the cheapest grocery stores in town, as they always offer deals and discounts on top of their regular low prices. Don’t worry. Despite being a great value, they still have the selection you expect.  

Bonus Choices: 

Trader Joe’s

Trader Joe's Grocery Store

We all know and love Trader Joe’s. Luckily, there are three locations serving the Las Vegas, NV, area. Trader Joe’s has always been a go-to for affordable prices, and they also offer a ton of convenient prepared foods that are perfect for a quick dinner. We love to go get their amazing cheeses for some charcuterie before a night out in Sin City!

Smith’s Food and Drug

Smith's Food and Drug

Smith’s Food and Drug is a competitor to Albertsons and similarly offers a friendly grocery experience. 

Their regular pricing isn’t the lowest you’ll find in town; however, they offer hundreds of digital coupons, an excellent rewards program, and fuel points, and since they are a subsidiary of Kroger, their store brand items are excellent. 

There are over a dozen in the Las Vegas area, but some of the more popular locations include the Smith’s on W. Flamingo Rd., W. Tropicana Ave., W. Desert Inn Rd., and W Charleston Blvd, Las Vegas, NV.  

Best Vegan Grocery Store

Veg-In-Out Market

Veg-In-Out Market

Veg-In-Out Market recently opened towards the end of 2019 and was the first and is still the only 100% vegan grocery store in Las Vegas. They carry only completely vegan grocery items and prepared food, often featuring many local suppliers and brands. 

Don’t worry. The selection includes far more than just veggies. You’ll find baking ingredients, pantry staples, snacks, refrigerated and frozen goods, and a vegan alternative to all of your favorite groceries. 

The Veg-In-Out Market is located on East Sunset Road but offers delivery through Instacart if you’re on the South side of town. 

Additionally, you can order online and pick it up in-store. On their website, you’ll find an option for pre-ordering their exciting upcoming additions with limited supply. 

Bonus Choice: 

Natural Grocers

Natural Grocers Las Vegas

Natural Grocers is a grocery store in North Las Vegas that focuses on eco-friendly, natural, and organic groceries, household goods, and dietary supplements. 

Though not all of their offerings are vegan, they have one of the widest selections in the town of both vegan and vegetarian products. We love Natural Grocers because they list out their standards for their different products on their website overall, only offering the most natural and highest quality selections. 

Unlike many health and Earth-conscious stores, the pricing is not outrageous, and Natural Grocers offers tons of sales and deals regularly as well. 

Find Natural Grocers near the southwest corner of West Centennial Parkway and North Aliante Parkway.

Best Las Vegas Japanese Grocery Store

Nakata Market of Japan

Nakata Market of Japan

Nakata Market of Japan is by far one of the most popular Japanese grocery stores in Las Vegas. They also have a sister company, Nakata Sushi, a favorite for delicious, fresh sushi in Las Vegas. The market, however, sells all of your imported Japanese favorites. 

Find fresh foods, drinks, snacks, bread, and household goods that you would see in an authentic Japanese grocery store. Nakata Market of Japan is also known for having very friendly staff who are quite helpful, especially if you need some recommendations or are looking for something specific. 

The Las Vegas Nakata Market of Japan is on South Rainbow Road, but they have an additional store on the outskirts of Vegas in Henderson, NV.

Japan Mini Mart is a great Japanese grocery store reminiscent of the traditional convenience stores you see all over Japan. 

They offer imported Japanese groceries and a DVD rental section (talk about a throwback!). Japan Mini Mart has fresh, frozen, and pantry goods, and though the space is limited, the store is well-stocked. 

Visit Japan Mini Mart at 4447 W Flamingo Rd, Las Vegas, NV 89103.

Best Vegas Korean Grocery Store

Greenland Supermarket

Greenland Supermarket Las Vegas

Greenland Supermarket is located at the Korean Town Mall at the corner of Spring Mountain and Rainbow. When it comes to Korean grocery stores in Las Vegas, Greenland Supermarket is the best. 

This store has everything from pre-made banchan (Korean side dishes) and a whole Korean food court to fresh produce, meat, seafood, and bakery department, as well as pantry staples, snacks, drinks, and frozen goods. 

Greenland Supermarket is huge, well stocked, and worth a visit even if you don’t need groceries just to see the offerings and maybe get a snack, too!

Best 24-Hour Grocery Store

WinCo Foods

WinCo Foods, which we nominated as the Cheapest Grocery Store in Las Vegas, is also open 24/7, making it a go-to if you are looking for affordable shopping any time of day. All of the WinCo Foods locations remain open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, so it is also the best 24-hour grocery store in Las Vegas. 

Other 24/7 grocery stores include Green Valley Grocery on Valley View Blvd. and Family Food Mart downtown on Fremont St., though they lack selection and a pleasant shopping experience. 

Note: Prior to the COVID-19 Pandemic, when the hours were changed, Walmart Supercenter was also an option for 24/7 grocery shopping in Las Vegas, but currently, their locations still close at 11 p.m.     

Best Grocery Store Delivery in Vegas

Smart and Final

Smart and Final is another subsidiary of Kroger, which offers physical locations throughout Las Vegas but also has excellent grocery delivery. Simply shop on their website, and your order will be delivered the same day. They also typically offer free delivery on your first order as a promotion. You may also be interested in their sister store, Smart and Final Extra!, which is all of the overstocks from their Smart and Final stores sold deeply discounted, though they don’t deliver.

The local neighborhood Albertsons’, located all throughout Las Vegas with nearly twenty stores, is popular, especially with the locals, as there is always one nearby. However, Albertsons also has grocery delivery services seven days a week, and your order is shopped for by one of their employees to ensure you get the best products. 

Though sometimes you can get your order delivered the same day, it is not always available. Select stores also do not have delivery, but Albertsons has contracted with Vons to deliver groceries in the areas they do not serve themselves.

The Psychedelic Grocery Store

It is dubbed The Psychedelic Grocery Store because behind every corner is a mind-bending portal to another interactive and immersive art exhibit.

Omega Mart is located at Area15 and is the perfect place to head after visiting one of the grocery stores in Las Vegas, NV.
