This New International Market On The West Side Is Incredible

The west side has a brand new, incredible grocery option.

Founded in 2004 by Gustavo Salazar, La Plaza Tapatia is an international market. Recently, the market moved into a brand new store, complete with outdoor space, a bar, a bakery, and more.

The new space is a whopping 44,000 square feet, located at 255 Georgesville Rd, right across the street from Hollywood Casino. With a variety of latin ingredients, I can see La Plaza Tapatia easily becoming a go-to destination for those looking to create delicious, Latin dishes.

There are a few areas in the store that will win you over right away. The bakery has a wide selection of yummy carbs.

There’s a prepared food section where you’ll find everything from Tacos to Peruvian ceviche.

And the absolute best part of the store is, without a doubt, Candy Land.

This entire room is completely dedicated to sweets and there are so many to choose from.

Other highlights from the market include a paleteria, a coffee shop, a bar, and an outdoor area with seating and space for multiple food trucks.

If you’ve been looking for hard to find ingredients that are coming in Latin food dishes, La Plaza Tapatia is a great place to have a gander. They’ve got peppers, papaya the size of your head, even cactus!

The staff at the store was friendly and welcoming and even though it was fairly busy, the lines moved very quickly. La Plaza Tapatia is open daily from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. For more info, you can visit their website here.
