Aruba is one of six islands in the Dutch Caribbean. The island, which is roughly three times the size of San Francisco, lies about 25 miles north of Venezuela. The license plates boast "One Happy Island" and, given the immaculate weather, white sand, flowing rum, and modest population of 110,000, it comes as no surprise.
We escaped to Oranjestad, Aruba's capital and largest city, for a few days earlier this month. When we got there, after a quick dip in the Caribbean, the first thing we did was head over to Super Food Plaza, the city's biggest grocery store and the greenest shopping center in the Caribbean.
