Complete with beautiful, fresh vegetables, an amazing variety of ethnic fruits and spices, and a friendly helpful staff , Global Foods Market has become a destination for many St. Louisans.

Shoppers regularly meet in the aisles to share their recipes and secrets to that perfect pot of yellow curry. Patrons always leave Global Foods with a smile, a basket full of food, and a new idea.

You will also encounter jewelry, clothes, furniture, old political buttons, button-top shoes, sleds, soda bottles and about 10,000 other categories you cannot even imagine.
