Grocery Store in Utrecht

Where can our grandson (a student) purchase groceries for a "thanksgiving dinner" in Utrecht? This would be items like cranberries, pumpkin pie mix, etc.
He can possibly shop in person (on his bike) or have the items delivered. He lives on Cambridgelaan.

Would appreciate an early response. Thank you.

ok, so what is the difference between this question and clearly non-travel questions that have been happily answered recently in the travel forum? e.g. ancestory questions?

See for instance:

You can also order but some Dutch is required

I hope my reply will not be deleted because this post was reported by people who think it's more important to follow VT rules than to give good advice...

There are 2 weekly Biological street marktets:
The first one at Wednesdays Noon - 5PM at the Leidsche Rijn-Parkwijk "Marktplein het Groene Sticht" (maybe a bit far out for him).
The second is at Fridays 10AM - 6PM at the Vredenburg in front of the Main Station (easy to get to for him)

For other groceries I'm sure he finds his way. The ALDI supermarket is very popular amongst the students at Utrecht.

The closest supermarkets to his campus address are:

Albert Heijn
Jan van Scorelstraat 138
3583CT Utrecht


Super De Boer
Adriaen van Ostadelaan
3583AJ Utrecht

... and there are some smaller shops along the Prins Hendriklaan.
All easy to cycle to (10 minutes or so).
