A new international market is coming to the Southeast Valley, specifically to 1920 West Broadway Road in Mesa. Called AZ International Marketplace, the new ethnic food hub will be located on the northeast corner of Dobson and Broadway Roads.
The market comes from the owners of Mekong Plaza, the Asian-centric market that opened seven years ago on the southwest corner of Main Street and Dobson in Mesa.
And if you've ever gotten lost among the stores, restaurants, and, of course, the sprawling market, located at Mekong Plaza — get ready to be blown away by AZ International Marketplace. This retail space will clock it at a whopping 100,000 square feet. For comparison, the entire Mekong Plaza will be able to fit inside just the market at AZ International Marketplace, which promises some 50,000 products from all over the world.
AZ International Marketplace is currently hiring. Visit the AZ International Marketplace Facebook for more information.
