Market Street Hosts International Food Expo

LUBBOCK, Texas — Market Street, a banner of United Supermarkets [2] here, will treat customers to an International Food Expo on May 1-2, offering samples of foods such as fresh baked French breads and spreads, Italian pastas with parmesan-crusted chicken breasts and Mediterranean-crusted salmon, golden pineapple from Costa Rica, chocolates from Germany and Spain, Guatemalan banana plants and bonsai trees, and wines from Australia and Germany.

Store “ambassadors” will represent countries such as France, Australia, Italy and Japan, offering free samples of different cuisines, along with information about the featured food items.

“This event is going to be really special,” Wes Jackson, chief merchandising officer for United Supermarket, said in a release. “As guests make their way around the store, each aisle and department brings a new opportunity for them to experience a new, regional flavor. For those unable to travel to foreign places and taste exotic foods, the International Food Expo will bring that zest right to the store.”
