This market is a nice enjoyable surprise for a South American. With goods such as the delectable Argentine dulce de leche and meats and the hard-to-find Brazilian chocolates (including the sonho de balsas). They stock Alfajores Jorgito, Mantecol, dulce de leche, yerba mate and empanada dough. Great little Argentine market. The Empanadas are as good anywhere in the city and they are a great price.

Incredibly well-rounded inventory with all of the essentials, Mexican specialties PLUS vegetarian and organic goodies. They have a great selection of Mexican necessities (dried chiles, nopales, corn husks, cheeses, cheap avocados, etc.), a decent Asian section, and more recently some organic and specialty products. You can find all the usual grocery store stuff here too. Every single employee here loves their job! It's super cheap and they now carry "green" and organic products
They always have every spice you could possibly need or ever want to make a fantastic meal. They mail order your herbs & spices to you. The staff is friendly, and always able to offer suggestions. This is a great place to buy your Indian Spices.
The perfect little neighborhood grocery store. Great selection of produce with a wide variety of fruits and vegetables. Shelves are stocked with tons of great Latin-American options, and there's a bakery in the back with fresh treats. There's a pretty decent beer selection and lots of cheap wine in the back too. There's a plethora of live seafood, meats, Asian, Caribbean and Mexican vegetables and other products.
It's a small place, but they have chicha morada, inca kola and aji amarillo. Just like your average corner store with milk, soda, chips & candy. Only this one even has empanadas and Mexican imported Coke, made with real sugar. They carry aji amarillos--Peruvian yellow peppers--on the shelves in cans and jars and in the freezer. Some look more like jams or paste, and some looked pickled.
