Bristol Sweet Mart

 Theme: Grocery store tips and tricks


If you like cooking with herbs and spices, my tip is to swerve the supermarkets and head to your nearest Asian grocery store – the herbs and spices at my local shop, Bristol Sweet Mart, and bigger, cheaper and most importantly, better!

Bristol Sweet Mart was established in Bristol in 1978 by the late Mr Kassam Majothi, a Ugandan refugee who fled with his family to the UK during the notorious reign of Idi Amin.

Mr Majothi started the business in the Easton area of Bristol with a small shop selling Indian sweet meats and home-made foods. Since then the business has grown and the shop has spread to occupy a number of properties on St. Marks Road. 

The Sweet Mart has a retail section, a wholesale shop and a Deli. They sell specialist Indian foods and spices as well as a range of fresh produce and groceries and a great selection of vegan foods too. It’s the one-stop shop for any obscure or unusual ingredient from asafoetida to zatar! It stocks 8,000 different products across the store. It really is an Aladdin’s cave of foods!
