Ethnic Markets in Phoenix (or the Valley)?
Some that come to mind immediately:
- Ranch Market in Phoenix
- Ranch Market (Super L) at COFCO
- Lee Lee Oriental Market in Chandler
What other ethnic markets are out there?
define ethnic... there are a number of jewish/kosher markets in town now as well, and there must be tons of carnicieras around... there's an asian market that's been around a while on the west side

I have been to a good Middle Eastern Market just South of Greenway on Cave Creek (on the West side of the street).
They sell prepared foods there as well (including hot items, like Falafel sandwiches if I am not mistaken). I have never got the prepared foods, but have had good experiences getting grocery items.
Asiana Market in Glendale. We just visited it for the first time last weekend. It's a large Korean market with lots of prepared foods - marinated kalbi and bulgogi, kimchee, panjan, etc - a butcher counter, seafood counter, great produce section, and also a wide selection of Vietnamese, Chinese, Japanese, and Indian groceries.

Baiz Market on 20th St south of Roosevelt. It's a really nice Middle Eastern market with an very good restaurant inside. I love their chicken shwarma sandwich.
I haven't been yet, but Shish Kebab House in Glendale was supposed to move to a new location across the street from their existing location with a market as well as restaurant inside. The move was scheduled for the end of Feb/beginning of March. The new location is the NW corner of Olive and 51st Ave.
There's a British market at Hayden/Thomas or Hayden/Osborn in Scottsdale.
There's also a small Euro/Indo market at 16th St and Bell. I can't remember the name. It's in the plaza on the SE corner.
Andreoli's is an Italian market that has a lot of fans. There's another Italian market at Scottsdale and Shea (NE corner) who's name escapes me.

Manila Market on the southwest corner of 35th Ave and Dunlap ( right near Romanelli's) has a good variety of Asian, Indian, even some African items. New Tokyo Market at 3435 W. Northern is a lovely Japanese market in the same neighborhood.
My all time favorite is Haji-Baba's at 1513 East Apache in Tempe, which also serves Middle Eastern food in its restaurant.
