The backbone of a community is the small business, that personal touch, affordable prices and convenience. Cozy corner shop and Rego Park gem, Gourmet Bazaar answers the call when that unexpected or invited guest arrives.

Sweet raisins and dried apricots, cashews, chocolate covered almonds, Turkish pistachios as well as humus, baba ganoush and other deli delights, Gourmet Bazaar provides for not only the holiday, but for every day. And of course, a handful of walnuts with your morning paper and freshly ground coffee sound good even if you are just lounging at home.

Packed with a mix of Middle Eastern and European “everything,” and a bit for every culture, Gourmet Bazaar is bound to have something you like and perhaps, have not been able to find elsewhere.

Always friendly and eager to help, “Chag Sameyach,” owner Fred Saz looks forward to welcoming new customers from around the neighborhood.
