How do you usually get your groceries?

I rarely buy foodstuffs because I live with my family. My parents usually buy them at discount store. My family are trying to eat organic vegetables and domestic meat. I think local food production and consumption is important.

I rarely buy foodstuffs because I live with my family. My parents usually buy them at a discount store. My family is trying to eat organic vegetables and domestic meat. I think local food production and consumption are important.

1. "store" is a count noun, so use an article to quantify it
2. "family" is a collective noun, which takes the singular form
3. the subject is plural (production and consumption), so use the corresponding verb
I think you are very wise for doing so. Consuming locally grown crops is the same as supporting the small farmers who grow them.

Thanks. How about you? Where do you use usually buy your foodstuff?

1. There is nothing to correct here. This is just an alternative expression you may use in this situation.
I usually buy them in the local market. Local farmers go there to sell their products and I think we have to support those small-time owners.

That' nice. By the way, do you like items that are labeled with discounts. My mother loves them.

1. there must be a verb in the sentence (is)
2. this is a question, so use a question mark
Sure, even though the products' quality is the most important aspect for me, you can definitely find great stuff that is not costly at all. What kind of dishes does your family normally cook?

We usually eat meat dish such as meat loaf and hotpot dish featuring thinly sliced beef with vegetables. These are very delicious.

1, 3. use plural nouns for general ideas
2. this is spelled as one word
4. don't use "featuring" when talking about food
I miss eating hotpot! Because of the restrictions, many restaurants are closed. Online grocery stores are very popular these days. Is it the same in Japan?

Yes. In addition, takeout is very popular among Japanese people. One Japanese-style hotel started to take out hot spring water. People mix hot spring water with usual hot water in their baths.

1. use gerunds (verb + ing) instead of infinitives (to + verb) for realistic ideas
2. you are talking about something specific, so add "the"
