Recipe Friday: New markets

Middle East market

A great way to get ideas for new food and new ingredients is to go to small, ethnic markets. We went to the European Market in Cleveland’s West Side Market last weekend and found a pound of dried whole peas for less than $2. (I plan to sprout those peas.) There were many more treasures there for really low prices.

On Sunday, we stopped at the Near East Market in Cuyahoga Falls to see what they have. We love Lebanese food so we knew we’d find some fun food. We bought some Persian tea for a school project and red lentils for $1.79. The rose jam from Turkey is indescribably delicious. I can see the rose petals! The real treasure is the date syrup. It’s a great substitute for refined sugar because it’s super sweet. They had a fantastic selection of rice, beans, tubs of olives, vegetables, and so much more.

Do you have a favorite ethnic restaurant or market?

  1. I love asia market up in cleveland…and nipa hut (although i have not been there in ages because it is far for me). Asia market is always a special treat for my family when we go eat chinese food in that area.
