There are tons of grocery stores to pick from! In Central West End there is a Whole Foods within walking distance and a Schnucks a little bit farther out. In Brentwood — approximately 10-15 minutes from campus by car — you’ll find Trader Joe’s, Target, and Dierberg’s. If you don’t have a car or are trying to save time, you can also get groceries delivered through an online service like Instacart.

As an international student and someone who has lived in very diverse cities in the past, I was genuinely surprised with the options St. Louis offers in terms of international groceries. Most start with United Provisions, a posh-ish, Korean-oriented grocery store located in the Delmar Loop. Another very popular option is Jay’s International Market; I personally really like this one since it offers items from around the world (European, Caribbean, Central and South American, Asian … you name it)! Farther from campus are the Asian grocery stores on Olive (which is informally St. Louis Chinatown, if you will); these have fresh seafood for sale. I wouldn’t hesitate to say that, whatever international grocery item you want, chances are you’ll be able to find it in STL!
