Discovering Northgate Market in Anaheim

Review of Northgate Market in Anaheimlast week, the boys and i were invited to the Grand Opening of Northgate Market in Anaheim on the corner of St. College and Lincoln. Northgate Markets are a chain of Mexican markets founded and run by the Gonzales Reynoso family who immigrated from Mexico. the first store was opened in 1980 in Anaheim on Anaheim boulevard. now their stores are located all over Southern California and include quality Hispanic foods including a meat department, bakery, tortilleria, and prepared foods, in addition to a sizable section of domestic and imported Latin American grocery goods.

Grand Opening of Northgate Market in Anaheimit’s been a long time since i have been to a Mexican market…mainly because there aren’t any located nearby, so its not convenient. but this Northgate Market is pretty close to me, so i can definitely make trips there more often. we had no idea what to expect…all of the specialty markets i have been to are usually smaller than a traditional grocery store, but i was amazed when i walked into this brand new Northgate Market. it is enormous…and even more impressive is its layout, food selections and quality.

everyone was super excited at the opening. i’ve never seen so many people waiting to get inside a grocery store. i can tell that this is going to be a favorite market in the area. to celebrate the Grand Opening, the first 300 shoppers got free groceries. there were also dancers and mariachi music. it was a very festive celebration.
