Theres a magical place in Watertown, MA that has THREE Middle Eastern Markets almost right next to one another…. They’re filled to the ceiling with olives, grape leaves, Armenian string cheese, rose and orange blossom waters, jars upon jars of tahini, honey and piles of giant flatbreads covered in za’atar….. and the reason we went: endless piles of herbs and spices. We try to get to the markets at least once a year to refresh our stash and we were long overdue this time. I’ve got plans people. Some great recipes are in the works.
If you wanted to visit the markets….Arax Market 585 Mt. Auburn St. Watertown, Ma Massis Bakery & Specialty Food Store 569 Mt. Auburn St. Watertown, Ma Sevan Bakery 599 Mt. Auburn St. Watertown, Ma
