    We will be travelling through France again in September/October to Portugal and Spain for the winter.

    When we were in France last month we were comparing the cost of food to the UK and thought that most food was more expensive.

    How do other people feel the prices in France, Portugal and Spain compare with those in the UK.

    Frenxch food prices

    You didnt have to think very long did you!!! We saw fresh cod fillet yesterday at €30 per kilo:Angry:. Ham in a packet is €11 to 18 per kilo and decent steak is unobtainable. That being said we wouldnt live anywhere else.
    There's a thriving business bringing your weekly shop from Tesco's, Sainsbury's etc overhere for an additional 15% on the purchase price, especially for the unobtainables..........Marmite, Heinz baked beans etc.

    Hi there...

    Greetings from Portugal.

    Food in France seems more expensive to me...

    Only buy Double Whoppers in Spain as I am alway in a hurry to get to Portugal.

    Here I reckon fruit and veg is much cheaper than UK... if you buy UK type stuff (Kelloggs McVities etc it much more expensive I think)

    But don't forget to bring your Fray Bentos Pies with you.. hard to find and very pricey here :Wink:
