We've been to all those places, but can only remember shopping for groceries at Kanab and Moab. Also, ate at two great restaurants in Springdale just down the road from Virgin.

I don't think you can swing a hungry cat in Utah without at least hitting a Walmart.

When you're in Virgin, there's a good market down the hill at La Verkin and then a Walmart further down the road in Hurricane.

Escalante definitely has groceries too, and so does Kanab.

I can't recall where we've shopped in those other spots, but you probably only need 3-4 grocery stops for a 24 day trip assuming you load up your fridge before you leave home.

This sounds like a great trip. Enjoy!

the last time we stayed at Thousand Lakes RV park on the west side of Torrey, they offered great Cinnamon Buns in the a.m. and on Fridays, they had a steak supper offered, also very good...not cheap, but good. [emoticon]
This was about 5 to 7 years ago, so be aware of that.

For Groceries, there's a City Market in Moab, and more restaurants than I care to take the time to List.

We don't eat our much and, of course, no idea what they are doing now, but three places we like are; Escalante Outfitters in Escalante, Hells Backbone Cafe in Boulder, and the Twin Rocks Cafe in Bluff. Moab has many places to try. There are groceries available in all towns though some (like Escalante and Boulder) are limited.
Have fun

We use Wal*Mart Pickup

This may help - https://www.allstays.com/c/walmart-utah-locations-map.htm

As you go from location to Location time your stops to do a Pickup.

Zion may be the likely spot ..........

When in SouthEastern Utah you could also slide into Colorado to Cool Off and resupply - https://www.allstays.com/c/walmart-colorado-locations-map.htm

During Covid there are also many places that will allow meal pickup, so not much chance of Loosing weight[emoticon]

Yes, we stayed there too! Thanks for the memory jog. We didn't eat the steak dinner, but had muffins in the morning. Homemade and amazing!

Southern Utah is not known for any good restaurants. Grocery stores are easy to find. Bigger towns tend to have better ones. Moab, Page and Cedar City are the best ones around in that country.
