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!

  • 5 star review  I love this Market. My husband is Trinidadian and we go there to get food items that you can't get in other grocery stores. It's a small market but it has a large selection of food, household, personal, and freshly cooked foods that are delicious. I love the fried plantains. They have a nice selection of Caribbean music CD's. I love the atmosphere there too. Check it out.

  • 4 star review  You can get all of your carribean food staples here. They also sell cooked food but keep in mind they sell it by weight. Their are also music and DVD's for sale. I don't really eat meat so I can't vouch for the meats but their cooked food good I usually get the saltfish and calaloo. This place has been around for a good while so its a reliable place if you like to make authentic Jamaican ( or whatever island you are from food)
