Shopping is forbidden on Yom Tov, so there's also presumably a prohibition on it on Chol Hamoed. What are the parameters within which it's permitted on Chol Hamoed?

In general if it is items you could not have bought before, e.g. they are perishable items that would not have stayed fresh. However look more at halachic authorities – CashCow Apr 6 at 15:58
