Large international markets like Todos Supermarket and Global Food as a group are the top grocery providers in Prince William County, according to a new report by trade magazine Food World’s 2019 Mid-Atlantic Market Study.

The 12-month study period ran from April 2018 to March 2019 and includes most major supermarkets, pharmacies and convenience stores.

The study’s authors noted that the region’s “international markets” — specialty and ethnic supermarkets that are at least 20,000 square feet in size — continued to add stores in the Mid-Atlantic over the past year and are becoming increasingly competitive, particularly in Baltimore and Washington. 

Across the region, 124 stores fit that description, seven more than the prior year. Together they combined for an estimated $1.63 billion in sales over the year, an increase of nearly $100 million from the previous 12-month period, the report noted.

In Prince William, 10 international markets reported a combined $193.1 million in grocery sales over the 12 months, accounting for more than 11 percent of Prince William County’s nearly $1.69 billion in grocery sales.

Year-over-year changes in the Prince William area showed increased sales for Wegmans (up more than $30 million to $185.2 million), but most of the other local grocers saw no growth or slight declines.
