Your best bet would be to make a stop in Libertad or Ballenita (45/30 mins) south of Montanita. The two biggest supermarkets (as in the US) that you can find are Mi Commisariato and SuperMaxi. There are two Mi Commisariatos, one located in Ballenita (smaller), the other in the El Paseo Shopping mall (bigger) on the border of Libertad & Salinas. The SuperMaxi is located about 5 mins farther in Salinas. Mi Commisariato is a bigger location where you can find almost anything but if you are looking for anything on the slightly gourmet side or difficult to find ingredients SuperMaxi seems to carry more of those type of items. You can usually hire a taxi to take you for the day of shopping for about $35-$45. Within Montanita you can find the basics between many different "tiendas" (relatively more expensive compared to supermarkets) and all of the fruits and vegetables are scattered amongst stands throughout each of the towns/villages. There is a "mini-market" found in Oloncito (in between Montanita and Olon). Hope this info helps!
