  1. India Sweets and Spices on Clairemont Mesa Dr, near the 805 freeway. There are a number of Indian markets around Black Mountain Rd, near the 15 freeway.

    I think there is a Persian market on Convoy, south of Balboa. Can't remember the name of it but it's on the west side of the street, before you get to The Original Pancake House strip mall.

    1. re: daantaat

      Its called Parsian and the building used to be a McDonald's. Right across from the Expo parking lot.

    2. I direct you to Kirk K's blog, and this particular entry:

      Ker's caught my eye a while back, though I've yet to make it up there:

      I'd recommend putting his blog in your favourites. He's a wealth of "food info"!

      1. There's a complex on Black Mtn. Road just north of Miramar that has at least three different Indian Markets, including Ker's. It's in the same shopping center as Ashoka the OK, er, Great.

        The Persian market/grill on Convoy is called Parsian, in the old McDonald's across from Home Depot Expo.

        North Park Produce (on El Cajon Blvd. near 35th) also has a lot of Persian and Indian products.

        1. I go to the markets off of Blackmountain road just north of Miramar. THey dont have the best selcetion in the world, but most of the items you might want can be found there.

          1. There's a Persian market in La Jolla called International Market and Grill. Its really small though. Pretty much only sells dried good and has a couple fridges for meat and prepared food. They have excellent take out though, its one of the few places that I actually like to eat at around La Jolla.
