Yes there is a system. The first three buildings up front have some of everything especially the second building. There is a parking garage between building one and two (pay your ticket at machine at bottom of elevator on leaving). This third building has consumer quanaties of all vegatables, beef, pork and chicken by the kilogram. The third building  back has a little bit of stuff in retail quanities. The balance of buildings can be identified by driving between them. All the citrus, squash, melons,  tomatos, ect will be together but most will only sell by the case or bag (onions). You should walk it once if you are able and note the buildings by number or street name to return to. Good restaurants in building 3 next after the garage.

Too simplified Geezer.... and leaves out huge variety of products that I, among others, buy there. Also, you are not entirely correct about the produce. In general, it's grouped, but you can find it mixed in with other things over and over as you traverse all 14 blocks (long) and 4-5 blocks wide.

Kitchen dry goods (cereals, rice, beans, spices etc.) are on the main drag at Calles 3 and 4, but also on Mandarina around 12, and inside the parking area east of  Calle 7 (best place IMO).  For example, on Calle Mandarina, between  Calles 12 and  13 on ONE side of the street there are candies,  pet food and accessories, dry goods (bean, rice, some spices etc.),  fresh veggies, and a hole-in-the-wall place to grab a bite to eat -- and this is a very short block!  Calle 13 on the other hand is a very long and wide block, and the variety of products on both sides of this street is too numerous to mention (or remember off the top of my head!)

Then you come to pet foods -- incredible variety and location of places, depending on brand lines but also mixed in willly-nilly with other items. And this does not begin to cover  non-edibles, etc.

Take a trip (or more) in there.  Park somewhere you are comfortable with and walk a few streets.  Do it again on others.  Make notes.  In time you will figure out what works for you.
