Solution

If I was a Roman housewife, then I would prepare a list of the following items:

1) Basic and essential food items such as grains, pulses, meat, chicken, lentils, beans, breads, cheese and dates

2) Trending items in the market like olive oil and wine too would be a part of my grocery. Trading terms with Spain, the Gallic provinces, North Africa, Egypt and Italy filled the Roman market with these items. Subsequently, products such as olive oil and wine became popular household grocery items.
