Carrefour: a great supermarket in Rio Grande
Carrefour is a well known supermarket-chain in France and the rest of europe and after my 10 days in Ushuaia with just local food plus 22 days of cruising in Antarctica with quite a limited culinary display we were really glad to find a real carrefour-market in Rio Grande and it was a large market like in Europe including lots of parkingspaces.
What to buy: My favorite was fresh baguette and some french cheese, that we ate in the car, so we would not waste any time in a restaurant waiting for the waiter...
What to pay: b.t.w.the baguette was 1,28 SRG $ (= 0,40 euros), cheese, ham and fruits are also less expensive than in EuropeRelated to:

Norte in Ushuaia, the World's Southernmost City!: The Most Ironicly Named Grocery Store in the World
"Norte of WHAT?" we kept asking. In Spanish, "norte" means "north", which is a bizarre name for a grocery store in Ushuaia, the southern most city in the world. Still, it is north of Antarctica and Puerto Williams, Chile, so it's not completely irrational -- just 99% irrational.
We bought our camping provisions at Norte, where the service was friendly and they take credit cards. If you're interested, Norte sells more than groceries -- I saw appliances and other big ticket items on display.Related to:
