Avoska Supermarkets

A local discounter supermarket chain, Avoska actually has most of the products you need on a daily basis. Even if you don’t need to buy any food, check this place out as you will see ordinary Russians doing their ordinary things – something very hard to get by if you stick to the hotels, sights and cool places.
Avoid buying fruits and meats as those may be outdated, but everything else is good enough. If you don’t want to cook, try ready-made “tvorog” (cottage-cheese) or “syrki” (sweet cheese), “pryaniki” (pies), “pastila” (sweets), “pelmeni” (Russian ravioli), and, of course, a variety of rye breads (“rzhanoi khleb”). Open 9.00 to 23.00 (22.00 on Sundays).
