Convenience stores, fast food... How do I save money?

We received the question: are there convenience stores, supermarkets, fast food restaurants, sandwich shops, or other such places within a few blocks of the Convention Center?

Debbie B. answered:
There are plenty of carry-outs, delis, fast food and even street food vendors very reasonably priced all around the convention center.

Christina adds:
Also, take a look at the restaurant section in the print guide -- it has a handy scale from $ to $$$$ so you know before you go what you're in for.

Lexington Market might be your best friend -- inexpensive, quick-cooked hot meals, doughnuts, fresh fruits for snacks... not too much ambiance, though. (Monday-Saturday, from 8:30 am to 6pm, see mapped on Wayfaring)

There are also CVS and Rite Aid pharmacies near by.
