Alternative Grocery Shopping near Main Campus

Yeah yeah, we know, there’s two big box grocery stores on Huron Line with everything you need. Sure, they’re cheap(ish), have satisfying variety, and both smell like bathroom cleaner, but what if you want something within walking distance or less clutter and screaming children?

Que these gems! Some of which are close and affordable and some even boasting a solid student discount. Let’s take a look at what produce we can pick up close to main campus.

Westside Foods
WestSide Foods University of Windsor

3242 Sandwich St.
Mon to Fri 9 am - 8 pm | Sat 9 am - 7 pm | Sun 10am - 6pm

A quaint, independently owned and operated grocer, Westside Foods has always been the go-to spot for students living in Sandwich Towne. For a small market, the variety is surprisingly sufficient. You have all the big brands at your convenience, but swell old fashioned Ontario-grown products flood the shelves with their local goodness. Considering their ownership, prices at times may be a bit hiked compared to big box stores, but their student discount definitely levels that out. Although it may be a strut for some living off of Wyandotte, it's worth the walk if you're a support local kind of person!

Student Deal: Spend $40 or more and get 10% off your total, any day of the week!

Joesph's works for just about any type of shopper. Supplying local produce and having a separate shop strictly dedicated to your inner carnivore is quite the people pleaser.

Multifoods near Uwindsor

If you're an International student, odds are you're already sick of Americanized food. Miss grub from the homeland? Look no further, the eastern hemisphere is here! From Korean sweets to live meats, there's something for everyone. But for real, Multifoods has the most diverse selection you'll find in Windsor and it's really not too far from campus.

Protip, if you've never been to an international-type market, be cautious but open-minded... try not to stare into the crab bucket for too long, it's like a scene out of the Walking Dead in there.

Student Deals: changes often.

Giglio's Market.
Giglio's Market near UWindsor

2268 Wyandotte St. West
Everyday 9 am - 5 pm
facebook? yea right.

Your classic Italian market and deli. Without a doubt, it's the closest grocery store with quality products, but the small selection hinders most from making this their go-to spot. Nonetheless, if you appreciate the charm of Italian style grocers, this place makes for a perfect quick pick up for a last minute meal.

Protip: Their infamous "Monster Sandwiches" are delicious and exactly as advertised, but if you ask anyone they'll all say the same thing, "STEP UP YOUR  BREAD GAME GIGLIO'S, YOU'RE THIS CLOSE TO BEING 10/10". Trust me, word for word.

Student Deals: Nope.
