Nope, if I was desperate i'd just get the essentials needed to get me through the weekend and do the big shop when your DP gets back. And if all else fails, bribe!!!!

I wouldn't flame you for it, but knowing my kids they would be in and out and that would annoy me more than having them help with the groceries lol.
I probably would leave it as a bribe for the end of the shopping. Make your list so you get everything you need without having to concentrate (I always miss things when I take my 3 too). A list means you get it all, do they like helping? That keeps mine occupied. Once the shopping is done let them have a play while you sit down and recover =D.

My child goes to a waldorf school where they are secure and in an enclosed yard until they are seven, then they are watched by more than one or two teachers during lunch.
I would not leave her unsupervised in a public playground. Never. Take them shopping with you and deal with it.
Would you forgive yourself if one of them broke an arm while you were shopping and in that hurt and panic and confusion no one could find the mother?
Sorry but I think they're too young.

Would not compare it to a school playground!!!!
This playground is in public where any Tom, **** or Harry could come and take your kid or other kids get into altercation.
Why not try make it a fun experience for the kids, get them to help write the list and draw pictures of the things you need and then get them to take turns getting them if the shelf etc

No, I wouldn't. Not because I would be worried about them hurting themselves, it's just a playground but because I would be worried about who else was in there and coming and going....and also because it might sound weird but I am SO big on taking my kids shopping with me, I think it's important they learn how to act in all situations I definitely wouldn't flame you for it though and at the end of the day, if you can see them, chances are there wouldn't be a worry in the world
