B & M Market

219 NE 79th St. Miami, FL 33138 | Upper Eastside/Miami Shores/Biscayne Park | 305-757-2889

Location Description:

B & M Market - which has been featured on Michelle Bernstein's television show Check, Please! South Florida (Episode 106) and twice in the Miami Herald - has been open since 1980. And according to co-owner Nafeeza Ali, it is one of the first and longest-running West Indian grocery stores in Miami. In 1990, Nafeeza and her husband, Sheir, bought the place from her uncle. Ever since, they've been selling authentic Caribbean products and serving hot take-out orders such as oxtail (small for $8, large for $10), stew beef ($7 to $9), jerk chicken ($7 to $9), cow foot stew ($8), salt fish and ackee ($8), and the West Indian burrito, goat roti ($6). "If you want something not too big or heavy, it's just right - bigger than a sandwich, lighter than a meal, but it can be a meal too," Nafeeza says of roti, which also comes in a vegetarian variety ($4). The best part about B & M's food: There's no MSG but plenty of fresh herbs and spices. "We go to the market on NW 12th Avenue and 20th Street," Nafeeza says with pride. Also available are natural medicine/remedy products.
