food supermarkets in Kata beach or nearby?

Hello

I will be travelling to Phuket, staying in the kata beach area with 2 children with food allergies. I am going to bring as much as I can to avoid them coming into trigger foods. Does anybody know if there is a nearby supermarket to purchases general food items, eg bread, yoghurts, fresh fruit? Thanks in advance for your help.

Fresh fruit is sold everywhere. Not sure about Kata but there's a Big 1 supermarket in Karon. There are also plenty of 7 11s.

Plenty of places that sell fresh fruits, there is a reasonably big supermarket on the main road, Big one, next to Big one is a very good bakery, all 7/11's will sell the Thai, IMO not very good, bread, yoghurts, etc.

Really nothing to worry about.

And in case you do start to worry anyway, in Chalong, so at about 10 minutes, there is a Villa Market with all kinds of western food and a big Tesco with all Thai food items and some basic western ones as well.

Hi, there's 7/11's for general stuff but as the others have said it would be a good idea to make a trip to Big One in Karon to get the bulk of what you need.

No, that would not make much sense IMO. Go to Big One in Kata in stead.

Are are lots of small supermarkets dotted about everywhere. There are also stalls selling fresh fruit. There is a large market selling fresh veg and meat and flowers etc on the main highway that runs past Kata (the market is near the petrol station). For a large supermarket, you have to travel quite far, at least a 20 minute drive.
