Baiz not only carries spices, they also have fresh chicken and meat (halal) and they also have dairy products, freshly baked Arabic bread, Lebanese sweets, and grocery items typically found in a ME store. Not only that, they also cater to other international communities such as the subcontinent and some gulf and Persian items, all of which are very important for our international cuisines. Fruit and vegies are fresh. They have a butcher that will cut meat into pieces that you prefer.

Excellent Kosher market, and they have a great prepared food section. Pico Glatt is a hodgepodge of tightly organized products and reasonably priced produce. The market is fine and good, cramped and difficult to navigate. The price of produce is so amazingly cheap - you wonder why everyone doesn't shop here. Since many Persians shop here too, they have wonderful fresh herbs also at ridiculously cheap prices. VISIT SITE

 It is a great Persian market... amazing fresh cut flowers, great cheese (both French and Bulgarian), fresh meat, cheese, Persian teas, and amazing fruit. In the winter time, no one has bigger pomegranates than this store...no one. Clean & fresh groceries, dairy products and a few but good deli items. If you're looking for somewhere to pick up Middle Eastern food items I have yet to come across a better place than Jordan Market.

If you are a fan of Middle Eastern fare, you need to make a trip to Middle Eastern Bakery. It's a small store stocked with spices, grains, coffee, prepared food, dried fruit and more. But the icing on the cake of this experience was the customer service.  The family and staff that run MEB are just lovely.  Great candies, dried fruit, nuts and jordan almonds. There are also aisles of dried beans, a million spices and herbs, and jars of tahini, honey, yogurt, hot pepper paste, rose water and more.

It is a good place to find Turkish products and some home food. They can cook in the store but they sell some bakery products like Baklava, Turkish bagel etc. This store has great selections of olives, jams, Turkish desserts, cheeses, and snacks. The store was clean, neat, and fully stocked. The pricing is reasonable and there is a good variety of brands to choose from.  There was an extensive dairy section complete with mint yogurt drinks and string cheese.
