Mecca Market in Raleigh

Found this place by accident but so happy that I did as there is a dearth of Middle Eastern markets in the Triangle. I bought harissa, tahini, avjar, cous cous, turkish delights, black olives, sumac, zatar, and some really wonderful bread that was like a cross between pita and roti/tortilla. Best of all, the prices are fantastic! For example, 12 pieces of pita is $2.49! It's located just a 1/2 mile or so east of the 440 beltline.

  1. Is this the place on Western Blvd.? I've never made it in there yet - your post is very tempting! I tend to go around the corner on Method to Almadina or a little north to Neomonde.
