Dallas has an amazing and expansive diversity, and you can see that in the sheer number of global grocery stories in the metroplex. Explore the below list for where you can find cooking essentials, snacks, produce and more, by region around the world! And special thanks to Anjani of Anj’s Creative Kitchen in helping us curate this list!
SARA’S MARKET & BAKERY
This family-run market feels like a mediterranean home away from home! Their assortment of fresh produce, a full service butcher and baked goods will definitely leave you with a full basket. In the grocery aisles you can stock up on items like spices, spreads, labneh, halloumi cheese, olives and frozen foods.
In the prepared section you’ll find homemade hummus, baba ganoush, shatta and of course we highly recommend their pita bread, made fresh daily!
The delicious smells wafting from the newly opened S Grill in the store will be hard to resist, if you want a sit-down meal. And sure to load up on the amazing feta and Turkish coffee while there. Check out their IG for announcements about daily specials!

India Bazaar’s impressive market is noted as one of the largest Indian grocery stores in the country and provides all the basic Indian grocery essentials, non-grocery items and more with an expansion of brand choices than your average market! Perusing the shelves one can expect assorted spices, tandoori, naan, teas (yes chai included!), coffees and more.
If you’ve never tried the deliciously sweet gulab jamun definitely add that to your list for dessert! They even have a selection of organic Indian products, plus they recently rolled out their loyalty rewards program where you earn one point for every $1.00 spent towards free groceries.
Shop in store or online for curbside pick up or delivery - they serve Plano, Frisco, Irving, Richardson and Valley Ranch!
EL RANCHO SUPERMERCADO
El Rancho Supermercado that has been around since 1988 and “has been dedicated to making the Hispanics living in the United States feel at home.” The grocery store chain offers a full service cremeria, daily handmade tortillas, a meat department, seafood section and produce along with delicious drinks from El Rancho’s Palapa that’ll make you feel steps away from the beaches of Mexico.
We can’t forget about the panaderia with its range of traditional sweet breads, freshly made bolillo bread rolls, tres leches, jellies, flans, cakes and Pan de Muerto for Day of the Dead! The panaderia has you covered for the holidays too with Rosca de Reyes otherwise known as Three Kings Cake.

Almost 40 years of serving genuine, Korean products, H Mart is a bonafide Korean grocery store with food items, health + beauty and home products alike.
All your pantry and refrigerated staples can be found around the store including seaweed, kimchi, dumplings, all the rice, noods, specialty seasonings and any snack or drink items you might be craving.
Recently they shared about the Samanco green tea ice cream sandwich with red bean paste which is essentially a Korean ice cream sandwich shaped like a fish that we absolutely need to try! Stay up to date with their weekly specials through their website.
JIMMY’S FOOD STORE
You can’t miss the recognizable red, white and green striped accents outside this beloved Italian market coming down N Fitzhugh or Bryan Street. Adorning the windows you’ll see some of Jimmy’s items in big letters like “Mama’s Housemade Meatballs” or “Cannoli” which has us already craving their Italian pick-me-ups.
You can grab a wide variety of antipasto (olives, cheeses, veggies etc) and fresh made Italian sandwiches or meats at the deli in the back, or you can browse the aisles for dry goods from Italian wines to pastas to candy to snacks and more! And of course, Jimmy’s has the ultimate Italian wine collection, with a secret wine room in the back even to browse.
If you love to cook, make sure to snag a bottle of olive oil and balsamic vinegar.

KUBY’S SAUSAGE HOUSE
Nothing is more traditionally German than sausage and we have our very own sausage house right here in Dallas that stemmed from a honest to goodness neighborhood meat market in Kaiserslautern, Germany in 1728! Karl Kuby opened a meats store in Snider Plaza in 1961 that now goes far beyond meat, bringing rich German flavors and products to the Dallas area.
Browse through their array of gourmet cheeses, freshly baked breads and gourmet items, while enjoying sauerkraut, schnitzel, potato pancakes and wursts at their restaurant!

THE BRITISH EMPORIUM
A taste of Britain can be found in Grapevine just a short drive northwest from Dallas! And if you’re a Brit yourself or just love the UK (because, hey, who doesn’t!) the British Emporium is a centre for all things from the motherland!
Load up a basket of crisps, meat pies, crumpets, biscuits, teas and a mixture of many British-themed gifts that would make the Queen proud! The emporium also sells South African, Scottish and Irish goods, and they’re known well for having the biggest selection of English teas in North Texas! Our bar cart is in desperate need of their Downton Abbey Cocktail Book and all the sudden we want china teacups to accompany their vast tea collection!
Shop in store, place an order for curbside, or call (817) 421-2311 for a mailed order!

SOUTHWEST FARMERS MARKET
Fresh produce and products sourced straight from Africa are part of what makes this proud, family owned Texas business the #1 African supermarket!
Stock up on pantry staples like all the key ingredients for your next beef stew or refreshing drinks including Ribena blackcurrant and Vita Malt. The fish and meat selections are phenomenal, and you can stop at the kitchen during your visit for African delicacies like designer meat stew or fried rice, jollaff rice, coconut rice and yam porridge which all come with your choice of fried fish, goat meat or chicken!

HONG KONG MARKET
When Hong Kong Market first opened their doors in 1985 their items were primarily sourced from Hong Kong, China, and Vietnam, but now they are proud to have two large grocery stores with goods from Japan, Korea, Africa, Indonesia, Thailand, Singapore and The Philippines!
The live seafood and meat selections are as fresh as they come with authentic offerings but the produce department is extremely impressive. Lychees, Asian pears, honey tangerines, durian, korean melon, and much more fill the bins, along with all the bok choy, yu-choy and Korean Daikon you could want!

LAKE HIGHLANDS | DIRECTIONS
This charming shop is located in a fully converted, cozy house that hosts a wide variety of Asian staples for restaurants and consumers alike! While Thai Oriental primarily focuses on wholesale operations, it's a great place to get retail supplies like authentic boxed goods! Customers have been able to score Thai roti, Korean cuttlefish rice cracker balls, Thai curry and sour curry paste to name a few! The owner opens up specific hours for the general public so call ahead especially if you are looking for specified items (he is happy to help and educate you on your items) and from what we have heard it is strictly cash only!
