About Us

For over a decade, we have offered Toledo’s tastiest Lebanese and Middle Eastern cuisine, finest Middle Eastern groceries and freshest selection of produce and Halal meats. What was originally a small market expanded throughout the years to a welcoming supermarket that contains nearly four times the groceries, fresh seasonal produce, delicious food items, and Halal meat varieties that were present in the beginning stages of ownership. Our deli consists of Middle Eastern staples including hommus and grape leaves, but goes further with authentic, homemade dishes that please any palette. Whether you’d like to take home a meal ready to go, or take groceries home to test your cooking skills, we have you covered!

Our History

Middle East Market was acquired by the Hariri family in 2005 at a humble location on Reynolds Road. As business grew, so did the space needed to operate. An expansion took them to the corner of Dorr Street and Flaire Drive where they accommodated customers for 5 years. Demand continued to grow and the business needed yet another expansion which led them to Bancroft Street in a storefront that as more than tripled in size. Sidon Lebanese Grille & Bakery was added as a full restaurant and catering business.
