North of the border: Chavez Market is building a clientele of customers from two worlds

Original post made on Nov 8, 2007

For a little spice in your Saturday shopping, visit Chavez Market at 46 Fifth Ave. in Redwood City, just north of the Atherton border. Although you might not have hominy, tamarind pods, or cotija cheese on your shopping list, you will savor a quick trip into another culture.

My experience at Chavez Supermarket is like going to family local store that you want to support and help out. But still has that big chain necessesity that you want when going grocery shopping. Even though they are expanding, that same small business pressence is not lost. They seem to know its more about the quality of the people, and the food that is important. Seems that its more then just making money for them, but about creating a relationship with their customers.

Best of all the Carne asada is to die for...I live 20 miles away from one of there stores, and I dont mind the drive because Its so worth it...

Overall all I rate the store the highest reviews.... All stars! Can compete with any major supermarket out there. Even Better!
