Sizars (Caezar) Has Not Moved

Howard County's best Middle Eastern grocery store has not yet moved to Elkridge.

Sizar's Food Mart -- a Columbia fixture for more than a dozen years -- is moving to Elkridge near the intersections of Rte 103 and Rte 1.  The original plan called for moving in November or December (and changing the name to Caezar International Market), but construction continues at the new place.  As of December 29, Sizar's was still open in Columbia.

After all the Fatburger false alarms, I won't estimate when the Elkridge location will open.  Freezers had been installed when I drove past last week, but there looked to be piles of steel shelves that still needed to be erected.  Obviously, there was no food to be seen at all.

The new location in the Dorsey Commons will be called Caezar International Market, and they'll have a restaurant as well.

Thanks to the anonymous commenter who visited Sizar's last week.  For more information about Sizar's, check out all the posts.
