Can't give you specific dollar amounts, but we found the hypermarche in Tahiti, near the marina, to be very expensive, say 150 - 200% of North American. On the flip side, it was the most incredible supermarket I have ever seen. Take an immense French supermarket and drop it in the middle of a tropical ocean and you get the idea. The market in downtown Papeete was also very good. Baguettes are cheap though.
