For those who like to eat, this thriving city has more than its fair share of great eateries, where you can find cheap local dishes at mom & pop restaurants around the city. 

Don’t think, though, that moving to Panama City means you’ll be giving up Italian, Japanese, or American food.

As far as shopping goes, Panama City offers tons of options that are both practical and fun. For groceries, there are dozens of supermarkets to be found around the city. Large chain grocery stores such as Riba Smith and El Rey offer a complete shopping experience much like you’d find at a grocery store in the United States. There are plenty of different brands and products to choose from, fresh meat and produce, and a deli section with hot prepared foods.

For those who are looking for something special or have certain dietary restrictions, there are also plenty of stores around the city that offer gourmet foods, organic foods, or even gluten and dairy-free options. And if you’re interested in getting the freshest possible ingredients while also having a cultural experience, don’t miss the Mercado de Mariscos for all of your seafood needs.
