In Germany, not only is the food different, but the way they get their food is also different. A German won't usually go to the local Supermarket to get all of the weeks groceries in one visit. For one thing, they don't have large enough refrigerators for that, and their supermarkets leave you wanting a bit more than what they have to offer.
A grocery store in Germany is about the size of a convenience store in America. They have some frozen foods, canned goods, cereals and a little bit of produce, but they're aren't "one stop shopping". Germans usually go grocery shopping every day, or every other day. They go to places like outdoor Farmers markets and fruit and vegetable stands, the Bakery, the Butcher, and a drug store to get all of the things that Americans can get in a Supermarket.
