    things at supermarket

    What are the things being sold at the supermarket called?


    I want to say:

    I am a wise experienced shopper. I know all the prices of foods(pluralized?) at the supermarkets

    Is the word food correct but there are things like cookies(snacks), meat, juices(not food/foods)

    - As you have written the sentence, it should just say food.
    - If you mention varieties, as in the second sentence, then you may say different foods like cookies etc.

    All the items you mention, snacks, cookies, juice, meats are various foods. (or items of food)

    Re: things at supermarket

    A very commonly used general term for things purchased at a (food) market is groceries. This word refers primarily to foodstuffs, but can also apply to various household items sold at a market (dish soap, sponges, can openers, etc.).
