"Grant street is a great place to find ethnic food!"

Grant Street is an old neighborhood with lots of international marketplaces. If you like mediterranen style food this is definitely the area for you. There's also a lot of fresh produce sold at the little family owned stores. Guercio's Market is a perfect example with its Italian specialty - homemade cannoli's to die for! A really great street to just take a leisurely stroll down.

"Multi ethnic people, foods, merchandise, come and see us!"

The part of grant street is in the middle of the street, between lafayette and west ferry.

No doubt, as is the case with alot of city neighborhood, this street needs alot of work. However, it is home to a great deal of immigrants, people who have lived here a long time and people just passing through.

This part of Grant street is near many of our cities outreach centers for refugees. They come from all parts of the orient, the middle east and africa. We have hispanic (which can be cuban, puerto rican and mexican), there are of course, white, black, native americans and some i probably haven't thought of.

All of these people have special needs for food, housing and general services. They tailor this little part of their world to their needs and the resulting clamor and offerings are varied and superlative.

Guercios is a market specializing in all sorts of ethnic food. They are family run and used to cater to the italian clientle who still frequent the market - but they have changed with the times and would be happy to advise you regarding how to cook a certain strange looking vegetable or use a certain fine smelling spice. By the way, the exotic smells here remind me of markets all over the world. If you stop and listen, you can find at least five or more different languages being spoken at one time as well as five or more styles ethnic dress. They have the most beautiful fruits and vegetables outside in the summer - the colors are beautiful!

The Meating Place (get it?) is a meat store which prides itself on providing the best meat (some ethnic and some like good old hamburger) in the city. Their meat is very fresh and the owners take pride in providing for the ethnic needs as well as the common ones.

This part of grant street makes me love my dear city and come back time and again for good food and ideas for new treats!
