A Latin American Grocery Store Is Headed To The South Side

A fresh wave of excitement has hit Parsons Avenue as Toro Meat Market announces the grand opening of their new store at 704 Parsons Ave, near the heart of German Village. This isn’t just any grocery store; it’s a vibrant, family-owned business set to bring the rich flavors and traditions of Latin America to the local community.

Fernando Alcauter, CEO of Toro Meat Market, shared his enthusiasm on the store’s Facebook page: “Big news for Parson Ave! We’re bringing the heart and soul to Parsons Ave. This is more than a store; it’s a place where every product tells a story and every visit creates a memory. Get ready to be part of our journey!”

The new store promises to be a haven for food enthusiasts and home cooks alike. According to their website, Toro Meat Market aims to cater to all culinary needs, offering “the freshest groceries around.” The highlight of the store is undoubtedly its meat market, which boasts the “best steaks, freshest chickens, and tastiest chorizo in the region.” The butchers, acclaimed to be the best in the area, are ready to customize cuts to perfection, ensuring a tailor-made shopping experience for each customer.

In addition to providing high-quality meats, Toro Meat Market emphasizes its range of products imported straight from Central America and Mexico.

The new Toro Meat Market is taking over a space that once housed an IGA, operated by brothers Mike and Marty Little. Despite the change in ownership, the spirit of community and family remains strong. Marty Little expressed his support for the new venture, stating on Facebook that although it was sad say goodbye to the IGA, “we found a great family to take over the store.”

This isn’t the first foray into the grocery business for Toro Meat Market. The brand has already established a successful location at 1405 E Dublin Granville Rd, Columbus, OH. The expansion to Parsons Avenue signifies not only growth for the business but also an exciting new chapter for the local community, promising a unique shopping experience enriched with the flavors and warmth of Latin America.

As Toro Meat Market prepares to open its doors, the residents of Parsons Avenue and surrounding areas can look forward to a unique shopping destination. For more information, visit
