Any West Indian/Caribbean groceries in Buffalo or Rochester NY?

Hello Board! I've recently moved to Rochester and have only ever lived in areas before where a good Caribbean market is a fairly easy thing to find. Six months later and I can't seem to find anything close to me. I'm hoping that some of you may have come across a decent West Indian/Caribbean grocery in or around Buffalo or Rochester. Thanks!

p.s. I also posted this in the general area, but upon the advice of another member, I'm also posting it here. Sorry for double posting.

  1. I don't really have an answer to your question, but I would suggest checking out the Public Market on a Saturday. I know I've seen a stand that has produce typically used in Caribbean cooking, and they have some spice / grocery vendors too which sometimes have unexpected selections. On the web, I found websites for Livie's Import Market on Chili Avenue and D&L Tropical Groceries on Genesee St. (both in Rochester), but I've never been to these places.

    Here is a listing I found:
