African Obichi may be tiny on the inside, but what this Mid-City market lacks in square-footage, it more than makes up for in selection. The small aisles and shelves are jam-packed with all sorts of African and Afro-Caribbean goods - from fresh produce, pounded yams, and stockfish to custard powder, palm oil, and beauty supplies - plus several freezers stocked with goat meat, fish, and moi moi. There’s also bags of flour, spices, banku, and garri, cans of ackee, dried beans, and sacks of shredded cassava. Basically, if you need it, they’ve probably got it... if not here, then at their second store in Hawthorne.
