This is such a great market. Great pastries and sushi! Love all the prepared gourmet items and the wide selection of gourmet foods. Love their selection of premium Arizona wines too.

We come to this location at least 2 times a month and partake in their various food bars. They have wonderful menu items to chose from and The Pizza is excellent. The salad bar is outstanding. A great variety of food and beverages. You won't be disappointed in your visit to this great place.

There are number of good premade options (premade in-store) as well as made-to-order options which you can place directly with the sushi chefs. I had shrimp and rainbow roll sushi, and found it to be very good at a reasonable price considering the... More
