Groceries & Beverages

We do recommend that you purchase the majority of your groceries from the mainland as the island grocery stores are more expensive. After all, every item includes a transportation cost. The island grocery stores are perfect for filling in on the items that you may have forgotten.  Although, I have purchased every item needed for a Thanksgiving feast right on Bowen. You will find the full array of groceries on-island required to prepare a special meal. 

Check store websites for the most current hours of operation.

16411 Fraser Highway, Surrey, BC

Are you driving up from the USA or driving in from the East? Take a detour (we always do) and stop to buy your produce and other special products at Two EE's Market in Surrey, BC.

Two EE's is a 25 acre family operated organic vegetable farm located on the border of Surrey and Langley. You can find their produce at their store, a popular destination for fresh fruits and vegetables.

Everything out of their garden is organic, grown fresh just miles away, and very well priced. Plus locally grown apples and other fruits at great prices. I am always amazed at the price of peppers at Two EE's.......NOT $1.29 each but more often a $.99 per pound. What a deal!!!
