A one-stop YUMMY shop carrying over 20,000 products from more than 50 countries at down-to-earth prices since 1983, Phoenicia Specialty Foods is a gourmet international food market with locations in Westchase and Downtown Houston. Originating from the flagship restaurant Arpi’s Deli, Houston’s premier family-owned market continues to focus on specialty items offering artisan breads, European pastries, boutique wines and beers, quality meats and cheeses, fresh seafood, catering, prepared foods, exotic produce and housewares.
Houston Dairymaids is a ten-year-old cheese venture. Part business and part exploration, our goal is to meet artisan cheesemakers, learn about their craft, and bring the best of their products to Houston. We look for cheeses naturally made by hand, and, when possible, from unpasteurized milk. Through the daily cheese tastings at our shop, we aim to share our experiences while expanding the offerings of specialty foods to our community.
Katerra opened a storefront in the heart of historic downtown Katy where you can purchase a variety of local grass-fed meats; fresh local produce; local raw honey; local food products. We have an amazing loyal customer base and strive to give them the best quality products around.
