A Mayuri International Foods grocery store is set to open in Redmond Town Center and will bring Indian and South Asian products, ingredients and culinary treats.
The 9,000-square-foot store at 7225 170th Ave. NE will feature a grocery selection of South Asian products and produce, a halal butcher shop, a bakery and an extensive variety of hot prepared foods and dishes.
The grocery selection of the store will include unique Indian snacks, grains, spices and produce.
Mayuri International Foods spokesperson Deba Wegner said the store’s produce section will include many fruits, veggies and herbs that cannot be found in a typical American grocery store. Items like fresh okra, tindora gourd, papdi beans, taro leaves and much more.
The store’s relatively large kitchen will prepare hot dishes from Indian, Indo-Chinese, Southeast Asian and Middle Eastern cuisines. The store has nearly 10 television sets fastened to the wall behind the deli counter to present food options, giving the impression that the menu will be staggeringly large.
Store partner Mahidhar Reddy said the kitchen will have enough space to support roughly 10 food prep staff members.
The kitchen will also offer catering services for events in the future.
The store will hold a ribbon cutting ceremony on April 5, but it is expected that the store will open prior to that date.
