Grocery Stores Near Our Belmar Vacation Rental

At our beach house rental in Belmar, New Jersey, you’ll find a well-equipped kitchen for preparing meals, along with a diverse selection of nearby supermarkets, farm markets, and natural-foods stores to shop for groceries and provisions.

Our rental is a short drive from popular markets such as ShopRite, Whole Foods and Wegmans, as well as independent grocers such as Matt’s Farm Market and Soulberry Natural Market. Check out the Belmar Beachcomber's top picks for grocery stores near Belmar, NJ. We've also compiled a list of our favorite places for gourmet takeout and Italian specialties for those super-chill days when you don't feel like cooking or dining out.

Remember to bring your own shopping bags to the grocery store, as New Jersey no longer allows retailers to provide single-use paper or plastic bags as of May 2022. Most markets have bags available for purchase if you do not bring your own, and we have a small supply of reusable tote bags available in our beach house rental for our guests to use.
