What happens when the Farm-to-Fork Capital is also one of the nation’s most diverse cities? We get exposure to a lot of amazing foods from around the world at local restaurants. But if you’re looking to recreate some of those dishes at home, it’s not always easy finding the correct ingredients.
Thankfully, we’ve rounded up four international markets in the Sacramento area for you. Time to stock up.
🛒 Oto’s Marketplace, 4990 Freeport Blvd., Sacramento
Since 1959, the Oto family has been a staple of Sacramento’s food scene. Few other grocers have the same high-quality meat, fish, and Japanese products that are available here — but you can also grab freshly-made bento boxes and sushi if cooking isn’t your thing.
🛒 KP International Market, 10971 Olson Dr., Rancho Cordova
In addition to foods from 40 different countries, KP Market also has the only Northern California location where you can buy products from Nature Republic — one of Korea’s top skin care companies.
🛒 La Superior Mercados, Various locations
These family-owned-and-operated grocery stores can help you whip up dishes from Central and South America. La Superior is City Editor Jordan’s go-to place to grab flank steak and Oaxaca cheese when he’s making carne asada fries at home.
🛒 Red Star International Groceries, 4760 Florin Rd., Sacramento
Infuse your dinner with the flavors of the Caribbean from this market. You’ll also discover hard-to-find products from West Africa and the Polynesian Islands.
