La Teresita Mercado

This is an authentic Latin market, where West Tampenos find the stuff they miss from back home: malta, jupina, queso boriqua and guava jelly, among lots and lots of other stuff. Plus there´s a butcher shop in the back and fresh fruits and vegetables at budget prices, such as red peppers, mangoes, papayas, and avocados almost the size of footballs. They´ve also got a huge selection of Cuban coffee, the whole line of Goya products (beans, juices, etc.), Badia herbs and spices that cost about a quarter of the price of the fancy bottled ones you find at the grocery store, and Spanish wines and olive oils.

La Teresita Supermercado, 3302 W. Columbus Drive, Tampa, 813-877-4393.
