Yasar food market, 319 Caledonian Road

Dsc01011 There is some great shopping on the Caledonian Road if you look hard enough for it.  Up near the Ferodo bridge, close to the Offord Road junction, at number 319 (map) Yasar is an excellent grocery specialising in organic and unusual continental and turkish foods.  They have a great selection of vegetables, turkish delight, breads, baklava, dairy products, teas and a small deli counter.  Most Novembers they have in lovely  fresh shahani dates from Iran and occasionally goats butter makes an appearance.  Important local source of Green and Blacks chocolate including the ginger one.  No alcohol licence though there is a reasonable off licence next door, now fresh meat.  Prices not cheap but it’s either Yasar or Iceland.  In one healthy walk you can take in Yasar and the Italian 1960s time warp that is Continental Food Stores opposite Tesco down near Kings Cross.

    The best hand made pesto, humus, borek etc, all fresh seasonal vegetables and fruit. Organic produce available, the customer servce is exceptional. Ask to taste items at the deli counter and you will be amazed at how delicious everything tastes as it is all home made. The Baba Ganoush takes two days to prepare. It is a little diamond of a shop in the cabbage patch of Caledonian Road. Everything is very resonably priced considering it is all fresh
