Default World Market

Has anyone else discovered this shop. They sell lots of British goodies ie Marmite, oxos, colmans mustard, hobnobs, bounty, maltesers etc. Not a huge selection but enough to make the homesick feels a little better They have online ordering and branches all over the US though not many in the NE of US.

I'm lucky enough to live less than 5 minutes drive from a World Market. It always comes in handy when wanting to stock up on sweets, and it also has a great selection of booze too.

Live in one of the largest metropolitan areas in the country and we have NADA, ZILCH, Nuthink.

Whole Foods opened up an hr south of us, in ultimate snowbirdland, that is dead for 6 months of the year and didn't open here.

Bob, you're not the only one.....

When we lived in Grand Rapids, MI we had at least a couple World Markets handy. When we moved to Columbia, MO, we had to drive two hours to St. Louis to find a World Market. We recently moved to Portland, OR and our local (actually it is so local it is in our back yard) World Market isn't called "World Market" at all on the outside. We saw the name "Cost Plus" and wondered what kind of store it was, so wandered in. Much to our joy, it was a huge World Market...only with the old name. There are a few World Markets here in Portland.

We have a couple Brit specific stores here that carry Brit food goodies. One carries more food products than the other as the other is really more a beer store with hundreds of different varieties of beers from all over the world.

We have one in Pensacola but I have found quite a lot of similar stuff in the food coop and a bit cheaper. I had to balance 3 dollars for heinz beans againts the gorgoous home made red pepper hummus at the food coop for same price.

There is a nice World Market in Delaware. Don't know how far that is from you.

I found some Heinz beans for $1.19 at the new Indian cash and carry store that opened near me recently. That's the cheapest I've found so far! For those in Central Jersey, it's on route 27, in North Brunswick. They also have Ribena and probably other goodies I haven't found yet.

I can walk to my local one, but it's a rip off so I only go there if I'm really craving something.
