Little Mexico Grocery Store
Owner: unknown

Cooperative: unknown
Location: 36 Broadway, Passaic, NJ

Today's snapshot is our final store on Broadway. Passaic's Latino immigrant population comes in large part from Mexico, compared to a city like Elizabeth which has larger Cuban and Colombian communities, for instance. Nearby Paterson has a large Peruvian population, with one neighborhood referred to as Little Lima. But here in Passaic we have Mexican stores like this one, as well as more Mexican products in the other stores. We'll be touring two large Mexican stores in a short time at the other end of town. Tomorrow, come back for a look at another independent store just a block north on Garden Street!
