Best Caribbean Grocery - 2012
B & M Market
Husband-and-wife team Sheir and Nafeeza Ali have run this friendly neighborhood grocery store since 1980. But it's more than peanut butter and chips. B & M Market carries authentic Caribbean products and hot food made fresh to go. Whether you're looking for an ice-cold Jamaican Ting soda, an Irish moss peanut drink, locally baked ginger bulla bread, a can of gungo peas, a freshly made plate of saltfish and ackee, a just-rolled order of goat roti, or produce for cooking your own typical island dishes, this is the place to shop. Vegans and vegetarians in search of authentic Caribbean products too elusive for Whole Foods might be pleasantly surprised to find just what they're looking for as well. They might even run into chef Michelle Bernstein there; she's a fan. And if you need a Guyanese folk remedy for a tummy ache, some Trini beauty products, or Guadalupan sundries, you'll find those too.
