Sizar's Food Mart is moving to Elkridge!

Sizar's Food Mart -- the Middle Eastern grocery in Howard County -- is moving from Columbia to Elkridge in early 2009 -- after missing the original dates of late November or early December 2008.  The business will re-open as Ceazar International Market and Restaurant and offer the current retail groceries plus a new halal restaurant.  

Definitely check out Sizar's for Greek and Middle Eastern items like yogurt, breads, spices, and olives.  Currently, there is a Ramadan special on dates -- $6 a pound for regular and $8 a pound for spectacular jumbo ones.  They're better than candy.  But if you have to buy candy (and I do), try the pistachio nougat at the high end ($9 for 12 ounces) or the Turkish Coco Star candy bar at the low (39 cents for a bite-sized bar at the check-out).

Ceazar's Inc. (opening in 2009)
6801 Douglas Legum Drive
Elkridge, MD 21075

NEAR:  Just off Rte 103 east of U.S. 1.  This is just south of Rte 100.

HowChow, you've got some great information here! I just wrote about finding bargains at ethnic markets for The Baltimore Sun's consumer blog and hoped you would weigh in with some of the Howard County deals, especially at Sizar's and Lilly's.
