Middle East Market: All things mediterranean. Check out their meat pies, sweet case, plus olives, feta, pita, and an interesting meat case.
Zavotski’s Meats: One of the better butters in town. Great chicken sausages, seasoned chicken breast, plus all the usual options for “things in a bun”.
Tiger Bakery: One word…pies. Meat pies, spinach pies, and other baked delights. A bit out of the traditional Super Bowl box but who cares
All 3 Monnettes Markets: Veggies, fruit, deli, wine, beer, finished.
