There are three main grocery stores in Whistler: IGA Marketplace - located on Main Street, this is the largest location and has plenty of parking. Nesters Market - Nesters is only a 1min drive north of the village in highway 99. Creekside Market - probably the most expensive but easy access with good parking.
