The Caribbean Market is located on the lower level of a modern, multi-story commercial building in Takoma Park, Maryland. It was first established in 1995 with the idea of providing foods familiar to many residents from the Caribbean region, and others fascinated with foods of the Caribbean. Enjoy an array of well-stocked West Indian foods and products made available to the delight of patrons, some of whom have shopped with TCM since the beginning!

  • 4 star review  The food is a little expensive, especially now during COVID, but they are social distancing and asking that only one family member come into the store. The carryout section only has small portions of food available. It looks like they're only cooking certain items, but for the most part you can still get what you need to find in the store.

  • 4 star review  This is one of the best Caribbean stores in MD. I’ve lived in both Montgomery and PG County my entire life and I have yet to find one better. Everything you could need (Caribbean items, that is) is here. The selection of products it’s awesome. I only wish the produce (fruits/veggies) was a little more extensive. The take away food they’re preparing in the kitchen the pastries they’re baking are also very good.
