grocery stores on Sunday / Floating Market

We arrive in Curacao late on Saturday, and plan to do our grocery shopping on Sunday. Are stores typically open on Sundays? What's the closest grocery store to The Strand/Avila? We will have a car. Also, we'd like to at some point visit the Floating Market to buy produce. Is this open every day? Thank you!

Essentially everything in town, including the floating market, is closed on Sundays. I know that the Centrum grocery near Piscadera is open Sunday until 5:00. It is also open other days until 8:00 so perhaps you could make a stop there the evening you arrive. You will go right past it on your way from the airport. Can't speak to others that might be closer to your hotel.

Thank you. Is the floating market open other days of the week? Or daily?

Yes, it is open days other than Sunday. We go there a couple times during the week to get fresh mangos...delish! If you want fresh fish, gotta get there early morning, or it's all gone.

Vreugdenhill Supermarket or Albert Heijn will be open on sunday and would be the closest from Avila..

A few shops will be open in town but not many..
