If you’re planning a visit to Moab to see Arches National Park, planning a stop at a grocery store is a necessity. The temperature hovers above 100° in the summer, and hits 80° during the off season. The park is full of hikes and incredible things to see, which also means you’ll stay active and will need to be hydrated. If nothing else, water will be your friend. Not all grocery stores are created equal when it comes to Moab, Utah. The best grocery store in Moab is definitely the City Market.
