Opening day at the new Food Bazaar Supermarket in East Harlem.

Supermarket chain Food Bazaar, known for its wide selection of international food, just opened in East Harlem.


The 45,000-square-foot store occupies the second floor of One East Harlem, a new development at 2319 Third Avenue between 125th and 126th Streets (it's main entrance is on 125th and Third).


This is the grocer's first location Manhattan. It has more than 25 stores across Queens, Brooklyn, the Bronx, as well as the tri-state area.

A quick walk through the massive new space reveals many hallmarks of the supermarket: an abundant produce section with fruits and vegetables from around the world, plus aisle after aisle stocked with both American and international groceries (the founder was born in Korea but lived in Argentina before moving to New York).


Notably, the East Harlem location also features a corner devoted to whole-bean coffee, plus a sizable fine cheese department.

The 125th Street store also offers special discounts: Senior citizens (with valid state-issued ID) receive 5% off all purchases between Monday and Friday from 7am to 3pm; anyone with IDNYC gets the same discount between Monday and Friday from 7am to 7pm. Firefighters in uniform get 10% off.

The new Food Bazaar is located in One East Harlem at E 125th Street and Third Avenue.

The immediate neighborhood had been considered a food desert ever since the Pathmark on E 125th Street and Lexington Avenue shuttered in 2015—but no longer.
