Gigantic mate selection.

I usually buy mate from Camaguey Market on Venice. Yesterday I noticed that I could turn around and find another shelf of mate that I had been missing. It was great.

    Thanks for the tip, love mate! It's a great South American market for sure, they also have a nice selection of Inca Cola-type sodas and the like.

      Thought this was going to be about a big & tall dating site ;-)

        Yeah - let's learn to add accents! As in "Maté" … I was wondering who would try to find a life partner on Chowhound, though I know some of us have!

        Back on topic: glad to hear of a South American market! There've been some Cuban ones mentioned, and some larger Latino-in-general markets have pan-American sections, but this might be worth at least a side trip.

          And I just thought I'd have a tremendous number of future dates...

          Okay, let me break out my ignorance flag and raise it up the flagpole....
