Is there a grocery store in San Felipe that sells fresh foods?


During my February trip I will need to restock with fresh foods such as fruit, vegetables and fish for the freezer. Does this exist in San Felipe? OXXO Just doesn't cut it.:!:

San Felipe is a good sized town by Baja standards.
Bakeries , coffee shops and at least one good sized market. Calimax should have everything you need.

There is a Calimax, a local market and several fresh fruit/vegetable stands. Also a fish market, and several fresh shrimp vendors on the malecon

I visited a friend of mine that has lived in the San Felipe area for over 20 years. I stopped off at a market in town and bought some chayote squash to have with a chicken I brought.
Well he had never tried that type of squash. It's more common with Mexican people. He really liked it. W/ salt, pepper and plenty of butter...
Try it if you haven't, it's good !




Since I've given up all hope, I feel much better

On Tuesday the fresh veggie place is across the street west of Calimax
On Saturday same guy is at the El Dorado swap market. Open to the public. What he sells comes from the farmers market in Mexicali and is less than one day old.
Otherwise go to Calimax and find ok veggies.

Fruit and veggies are sold in many spots as well as sea food. The Calimax is huge... been there a few years now. I can ask on the South Campos Facebook page and I bet others here are in El Dorado Ranch and can advise? San Felipe is big now, and Mexicans love fresh food as they are great cooks.

Seems like kind of a dumb question? Town isn't that big...Go look...Or do we need an "APP" to find a grocery store?

But, what if I want a nut, lactose, and gluten free certified organic market? And a civet cat poop beans cup of coffee? Where am I going to get free WiFi so I can Facebook, Instagram, Tweet, and upload my thousands of selfies? You're not helping here, Chuck!

It's a dumb question, but my health now requires fresh food,not processed or canned junk. I carry a Dometic fridge (with freezer compartment) for food storage. I have heard about a Calimax grocery store, but I have never actually seen it. I am asking so that it can be found as this time, there is no opportunity for trial and error. Group dynamics depend on it.

Thanks to Google Maps, I located it. It must either be new or hidden or both. I haven't been to San Felipe in two years, so this is an important stop for me.

Ken, it's on the highway coming to downtown. Parking in front. It is where the Clam Man used to be.

I found it last year, and wasn't even looking for it! You won't have any trouble seeing it from the main road.



If you are not living on the edge, you are taking up too much space!

That will be very helpful. I'm excited to purchase fresh food in San Felipe.

In your Jeep? What size? Where do you mount it? How do you secure it?

I was NOT impressed with the selection of produce at SF Calimax when I stayed there for 2 months. Most of the produce was substandard compared to other Calimaxes in larger cities such as Ensenada. The only place you'll find fresh food that has not been shipped from Ensenada or Valle de Trinidad or somewhere else is the roadside stands. There was one near Calimax when I was last there in October. In general, not impressed with any store in SF since it is a relatively small town with limited selections.
