Indian grocer spicing up people’s pantries

A sort of Indian renaissance has gripped the Thompson food scene, with two restaurants opening up almost simultaneously several months back. But while there’s been plenty of food to satisfy people’s appetites, Thompsonites now have more in the way of zesting up their pantries as well. 

Owned by Neeraj and Vikas Dhawan, Harry Ghai and Ashish Ghai, Thompson Food Mart is located in the rear of 79 Selkirk Drive (behind Domino’s Pizza); the small grocer sells a wide variety of staple Indian desserts, biscuits, and other canned and boxed goods that will offer a taste of home for those coming from India, and a new world for other Thompsonites to explore in their kitchens.

Along with the frozen and prepared goods found at most corner stores, Thompson Food Mart also brings in a selection of fresh fruits and vegetables exotic to and otherwise difficult to find in the north.
