Located in North End Halifax, MidEast Food Centre is a purveyor of fine local foods and imported goods and spices from around the World.
When you first walk through the door, the aroma of fresh spices and Mediterranean cooking envelops your senses and draws you into the bustling atmosphere of this iconic Middle Eastern grocery store.
With bins of fine grains and exquisite spices, bulk containers of imported olives, nuts, and dried fruits, old fashioned barrels of coffee beans, spices and the simple warm atmosphere – this feels like an old-world place – and it is.
MidEast Food Centre has been doing business in Halifax for over 50 years.
The Laba family opened on Agricola Street in 1967.
Since then Mr. Salam Mohammad (originally from Iraq), and his family carried over and the business continues to thrive, with customers filtering in from all corners of Atlantic Canada.
“Here you’ll find ethnic items that you would not find in the average grocery store,” says Salam Mohammad. His family works with him at the store which is now three generations strong.
The appeal of MidEast Food Centre is, and always will be, the quality of their food.
From the gourmet chefs, to the adventurous home “experimenter”, you will be sure to find the perfect ingredients on MidEast's brimming shelves.
Grains, beans, spices and many multinational varieties of olive oils and cheese abound.
