Discover How to Add Grocery Shops in The Sims 4!

One thing is particularly weird in The Sims 4 – we don’t shop for our own food! In fact, we simply buy whole meals right from the interaction menu. And even when we use ingredients for cooking a recipe, we don’t really choose our ingredients like in the real world, right? Well, that’s all about to change because today we’re talking about the Sims 4 Grocery Mod!

Can you go grocery shopping with this mod in Sims 4?

Absolutely yes! Among other things, the grocery mods adds groceries all over The Sims 4. This means that you can now visit such shops and buy your own ingredients. In these groceries, you can find nearly everything, from fruits and vegetables to snacks and soaps! So you can finally purchase everything you need and stuff it all over your kitchen!

That said, let’s check everything you need to know about the Sims 4 grocery mod!

Sims 4 Grocery Mod: An Overview

The Sims 4 grocery mod is an original creation by George over at He is one of the first players with the idea of making a functional grocery shopping mod. His extension was originally published back in 2016, and we’re currently using the updated 1.2 version. Since then, this mod has reached nearly 160,000 downloads which really speaks about its quality.

However, before installing the mod, you must own these two DLCs – Get to Work and Outdoor Retreat. Both the expansion and the game packs are one of the first DLCs for Sims 4, and most players own them. The groceries are built from the item included in these packs, so you can’t make it work without them.

How Do You Use the Grocery Mod?

The groceries are now actual locations that you can visit. They’re designed in a very realistic way, with rafts, refrigerators, and counters. One thing that we particularly like is the addition of toilets inside the groceries. Hence, you have this feeling like you’re inside the mall.

Inside the groceries, you can purchase any food and almost any flower. Whether you’re looking for meat, Chinese noodles, or a Korean soup, you can find all it there. The Sims 4 grocery mod is compatible with food CC on the internet, so you can add more stuff later on.

The Sims 4 grocery mod works with two versions, called flavors – Traditional and DIY (do it yourself). With the latter version, you can sell your own harvestable and make money. And the traditional flavor adds new grocery shopping interactions. You can use either one of them.
