Market to Pantry #6: Cosmos International Market, Hartford, Connecticut


From Susan, in Keene, New Hampshire:

When we can get to Hartford, we enjoy shopping at the ethnic markets. Cosmos is a tight little space packed with lots of dry food, tea, candies, prepared food, CDs and lots of Bollywood movies, as well as a small selection of frozen, refrigerated and fresh foods.

I was looking for rasam powder, found it in paste form, and left with a bag full of favorites and new-to-me goodies.




On Saturdays, for more than two years, we've been peeking into Other People's Pantries all around the world.

*There are six more pantries to share. If you'd like this feature to continue -- if you've been meaning to send your photos but haven't gotten around to it -- please send in your pantry photos. Here's how.

And, please put your camera to work on Market to Pantry, alternating on Saturdays with Other People's Pantries. There are four more markets to share.

Come on -- show us your favorite supermarket, farmer's market, ethnic market, big box store or roadside stand. We'd love to see where you shop for food!  Here's how.


thanks for sharing,,,the place looks like a good find, and of course I had to see what rasam powder is, so thanks for that as well

Hey look, there's an apartment for rent above this market for a really serious foodie...

Drooling from afar - what a glorious selection to choose from.

Geez ~ I live 20 minutes away & didn't know it existed. Thanks!

Great story! I will have to send in one of my favourite little stores in Coffs Harbour, (Australia) although it may be a little far to to travel if your missing just one ingredient. ;)

Goodness, I grew up not far from there and I don't remember anything like this..

Looks a really well-stocked store and large too!! NICE!

If you rent that apartment, you can be well fed. Cosmos sells prepared food, there's a Russian deli at the end of the block, and a Brazilian bakery/coffee shop across the street. Middle Eastern food a few blocks away... We love shopping in Hartford, 2 hours away.
