Next to the John Muir Lodge, and three miles from the Kings Canyon Big Stump entrance, the Grant Grove Market at Grant Grove Village is a buzzing retail hub where visitors can re-supply, re-energize and re-group on arrival at Kings Canyon. In addition to shops and restaurants, the wonderful Kings Canyon Visitors Center is located at Grant Grove Village.
This compact supermarket sells basic groceries, beer, wine and camping supplies. It's also the place to rent cross-country skis and snowshoes in winter. A souvenir penny-smasher is on the front porch, and a small post office is located inside.
In the winter we have ski and snowshoe rentals and sell tire chains, boots, coats, hats, gloves and other items for your winter adventures in Kings Canyon.
A bit of history about this building provided on the website, historic-hotels-lodges.com. "The color, roof line, and siding on this building matches the more modern look of the adjacent Gift Shop & Restaurant building with a lower slope on the roof. In a nod to the rustic style, this building uses gables with large exposed timbers, and bracketed outriggers supporting the gable, as appears on all of the pre-1960 buildings. The windows are also multi-pane to match the style of the older buildings."
