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  Great location, good selection of products from home. Lots of parking. I stopped getting food from the hot bar because they got greedy and started charging by the pounds.

  • 5 star review  Great selection of Caribbean goods that include fresh meats, vegetables and caned items. They also serve hot meals. I purchased some curried goat and rice and peas, which was fantastic. One of the finest Caribbean grocery stores that I have been to. By the way they also sell music and memorabilia.

  • 4 star review  Great food. Prices are a little steep. My friend got the curry boat but felt it lacked seasoning.
