A new shop in Gaywood is proving extremely popular selling products that can be used to cook all kinds of international cuisine.
The Spice Market at 83 Lynn Road, has seen a steady stream of customers of all nationalities since it opened its doors two weeks ago.
“We are selling food that can be used for all kinds of cooking – Asian, African and Indian, for example,” said Mathew Thomas, who is a co-owner of the business along with Thomas Varghese, a relative, and Biju K. Samuel, who is a friend.
“There is lots of variety, from fresh vegetables and seeds to all kinds of spices and packaged food too.
“Since we opened, trade has been going very well and and we have had people from lots of different countries, as well as British people who like speciality food too,” said Mathew.
To mark the opening of the shop a ribbon was cut by Mathew’s mother-in-law Thresiamma John and Cicilia George, who is the mother of a friend.
The shop is open from 9am to 7pm, Monday to Saturday and on Sundays, from 11am to 4pm.
