Where to buy groceries in the Blue Mountains

Lawson-FriendlyGrocer

From specialty grocers to big-name supermarkets, here’s where to stock up on food and essentials when visiting the Blue Mountains.

Eating at restaurants and cafes in the Blue Mountains is part of the fun of coming here, but – let’s face it – sometimes there’s nothing better than tucking into a home-cooked meal when you’re travelling. And if your accommodation in the Blue Mountains offers a kitchen and cooking facilities (as does Luxury Bush Escape – the accommodation I provide) you can do just that.

But where does one conveniently buy foodstuffs and other bits ’n bobs in the Blue Mountains?

Since Luxury Bush Escape is located in Bullaburra in the mid-Blue Mountains, this article will focus on the mid- to upper-Mountains (Hazelbrook to Katoomba). And since I support locally owned businesses I will list smaller grocers first and supermarkets at the end of the article.

INDEPENDENT GROCERS

If staying at Luxury Bush Escape the closest shops are in Lawson, but you might find it more convenient to buy things when visiting Wentworth Falls, Leura or Katoomba. All mentioned Blue Mountains independent grocers have free parking available nearby.
