Like most ski resort grocery stores, prices are high and selection is fairly limited. Roxy’s Market is another convenient store located across the highway next to the Aspen Pitkin County airport, with a small selection of goods as well as pre-made foods and salads. A quick trip into town presents plenty of standard grocery stores and supermarkets with much larger selections and more reasonable prices.
