    Although a little pricey compared to your local grocery store, Vons is the only game in town for a full service grocery store.

    Biggest grocery store in town. Everything you will need for food, fishing (yes they sell bait) and a video rental. Go early though 3-5pm during ski season is a zoo!

    I'm not a big fan of most Vons supermarkets. This one is an exception. It is the best place in town to get all of your Mammoth needs. Almost always crowded, I have always found the clerks to be helpful.

    Located in the lovely Minaret Shopping Center http://www.gogobot.com/minaret-village-shopping-cente-mammoth-lakes-attraction this supermarket is the only game in town. Perhaps that is why the police station is a half block away... Formerly Safeway, this supermarket was originally located where the Rite Aid is now at the corner of Main and Old Mammoth.

    Now being located at Meridian and Old Mammoth it is a quick cruise from anywhere in town. Still having a virtual monopoly has allowed this store to be the single busiest supermarket that I know of.

    Pro Tip: Come here in the am when all of the tourists are out hiking, fishing, biking, skiing, or are snowed in. Like around 10am

    The lines are always full and the food will fly off of the shelves here. So if you know what you want act on it quickly before deciding to peruse the aisles for interesting things.

    Pro Tip #2: The prices here for non sale items are very high. Be forwarned that you want to get things on sale or bring it with you if you are from out of town.

    Make sure you have your vons card number or get one so you can get a discount becuase otherwise, well you just got ripped off worse than Bonnie n Clyde with an open safe in front of them.

    The quality of the meats, cheeses, veggies, etc is all very good. The store is very clean for how much traffic it receives.

    I would suggest shopping here, but why? They dont have any true competition in town as far as groceries go. They do treat you very courteously here though I must say. Part of the Mammoth charm IMHO...

    Favorite and only place to shop. Don't go late afternoon, early evening as it is very crowded. The view from the parking lot is terrific. Have you ever pushed a shopping cart in the snow?

    The last time I was there the clerk said, "thanks for shopping Vons, your only choice in Mammoth Lakes."

    When in Mammoth, come here for all your grocery and pharmacy shopping needs! We stopped here to stock up the kitchen back at the hotel. Meat and fresh produce was of good quality, better than the Vons near where I live in Los Angeles. Beware! Non-sale items were pricey. Also this store gets very crowded in the afternoon hours. Try to visit off-peak.

    The newly remodeled super market in town is the first place we stop on the way into Mammoth!
