There are shelves dedicated to food, pots and cleaning supplies of Africa-- not to mention beautiful fabric.
It's a mix of a Middle Eastern market & liquor store. The selection, including some African products is pretty amazing and varied. They had all sorts of foods, spices and other selections.
Cool little food/ gourmet/ convenience store. Imported foods that are hand selected by the owner, "Mo" -- who is so friendly and will let you taste the newest finds..... sometimes brownies and other sweets.... sometimes a new middle eastern dip that is unique to his store.... just lots of stuff. Also pedestrian things like Sprite, milk, etc. They've got great foods from England, Ireland, other Middle Eastern countries, great feta cheese from France and Bulgaria, yogurt from Greece, Armenian breads ... the list goes on and on.
This family-run international food market is a favorite for running quick errands or finding quality Greek speciality food items including spices, olive oils, feta cheese, etc. The staff is extremely helpful whether you are looking for a particular item or need advice on a product. The market also features freshly made take home items including spinach pie, gyros, and more
A small African grocery on Essex Street in Lynn. This store caters the African immigrant population with such items as various flours and oils that are staples to the west african cuisines. They have a large freezer of bagged cow skin for african cow skin soup and a delicious spicey plantain chip. They do not have a lot of pre-packaged goods but have all the ingredients necessary to form the base for any west african meal.
Inside they have multiple whole walls dedicated to rice and aisles dedicated to noodles. They have a really big selection of cookware too. The spices/sauces/condiments are aplenty and they have a very nice selection of produce and meat/fish. They even have a prepared food corner and herbal medicine corner. The only thing that may be a little lacking is their frozen section. The staff are nice too and it's not too messy inside like some other Asian markets.The meat section is questionable, but the fish area typically has a lot of fresh seafood.
The prices are really outstanding, especially for the various sauces, noodles, vinegars and oils. If you are new to Asian cooking, look up some easy recipes to start with, bring a shopping list, and you will find everything you need. Overall a great selection of Chinese food and cooking supplies, an abundance of produce, and seafood so fresh it is still living. The soy sauce selection is abundant, there are dozens of interesting juices, and the frozen dumpling selection isn't too shabby either.
Large Asian grocery store with all you need for your Asian cooking needs.You can find everything Asian: from the kinds of vegetables that are only used in Asian food to a large variety of spices. Their selection of fish and meat is great!
A good oriental store to get your asian food essentials (asian cookware, sauces, condiments, snacks, vegies, meat, rice, noodles, frozen pot stickers etc). Cheaper than many other oriental stores.
There is a huge selection of everything, and all at very cheap prices. There was an entire isle devoted just to noodles and sauces, as well as mass amounts of pocky and other candies and snacks. There are tons of fresh veggies, as well as fresh seafood in the back. They also sell things like plates, bowls, teapots, placemats, etc. The people who worked there were really friendly.
There are tons of fresh produce and seafood options available. Also, if you've never been before, there are plenty of Asian groceries and products available in the store: everything from actual food to rice cookers.The price is a bit higher than the Chinese markets in Boston, but the quality seems to be a bit better as well. It also has several Asian style eateries and a bakery.
