I discovered a very nice Mexican grocery store on my quest for corn tortillas that taste of corn, carni asada that was pre-seasoned and fresh tamales for the holidays. On my quest, I found the Carnival Market that had all of the things I was searching for and so much more!
When I got to the market, the first thing I noticed was the fresh fruit and vegetables that greeted me at the door. There were tomatoes and lettuce and avocados and cilantro. Basically, every vegetable you would need to accompany a true Mexican feast was front and center and fresh and colorful.
Then as I walked through the automatic sliding door, I could smell the authentic Mexican food scent wafting through the air. It pulled me right over to the left of the store where they sold pre-cooked, ready to eat Mexican food. You can grab food to go or sit down in the cafe and eat it hot and fresh. My mouth is watering as I remember the tempting flavors that were surrounding me.
Then, further into the store, I discovered authentic Mexican pastries, home made salsas, a full service deli, at least five different brands of tortillas and all of the Mexican brands I was familiar with from living in southern California. I felt like I was back in southern California also noticing that the prices were MUCH better than those that I have found at the local grocery stores. They have a nice balance of Mexican brands mixed with the favorites you would find at Kroger or Meijer.
Carnival Market is located at 1101 E. Walton in Pontiac, MI.
