Olives, olive oil, 10/3/2009
Reviewer: Ayla from Santa Barbara, CA
Great selection of food from Turkey, Middle East and Eastern Europe. I Can't cook Turkish food without visiting this market. They have very good Turkish olives (Marmara Birlik)and Olive oil from Turkey. The prices are very reasonable. Great owners open to suggestions. If they don't carry what you are looking for they will try to bring it.

Great Service. Great Produce And Deli .... And Most Importantly Great Prices ! ( us being in the recession and all) They also cater International Cuisine. I almost forgot to mention that the new name for this market is " European Deli & Market" And really nice new owners.

MOSCOW HAM!!, 2/24/2009
Reviewer: Pup Boy from Santa Barbara, CA
Man, the Moscow ham is probably the best ham I have ever had. It is infused with garlic chunks and has a sweet, smoky flavor. Simply the best!

Good bread from L.A. and awesome meats, 1/27/2008
Reviewer: Katie DiGiulio from Santa Barbara, CA
If you get here before closing on, I believe it was a Thursday night, they have fresh bread with sesame seeds on it just delivered from L.A. It's all sold by the next morning. It's only $1.99, I bought two and it's enough to feed a party of 10 or more...reminds me of New I miss good meat/deli meats and good bread from real bakerys. You really should take a chance and taste some of their meats. They are worth it!

I've only ordered a sandwich here once. I gave my order at the not-very-busy counter and then waited and waited. I had plenty of time to peruse the quite fascinating stock of international products on the shelves, as the woman making my sandwich couldn't seem to focus on the task at hand. She must have taken 8 minutes to spread mayo on bread, slap a few pieces of meat on it, contemplate lettuce and tomato and whether or not they deserved to be eaten, and finally to wrap the mediocre creation and hand it to me. Far too expensive to be so mediocre, and sure not worth the wait.

Happy Armenian Customers!!! , 12/6/2007
Reviewer: Anna Sarkisyan from Santa Barbara
I have gone to school at UCSB for 4 years and haved missed my mother's and granfmother's armenian cuisine! I was so excited to hear that this store was opened. Now I can have pita bread whenever I want, the deli meats are amazing, and their customer serivice is exceptional!!! This is, no doubt, one of my favorite places to shop! I want to say thank you to the owners, managers, and employees for keeping this store going! See You Soon!

I live in LA where Armenian markets are on every corner so I was happy to find this one. I can find all the same products as I do at home and if you are a regular customer they offer to order anything else that you request. I love the owner!

arabic, east european and all sorts in a bright & tidy shop, 2/4/2007
Reviewer: lemonjelly from santa barbara, ca
I've shopped here several times now. The deli counter has a really great selection of meats and fish and where the International Market stands out is the variety that differs from the standard fare of regular markets. Kudos to the deli staff who are patient to my dithering and questions. Each time I come in, I pick up a little of something new - salami, bologna, pate/wurst, and sausages. Their rib eye steak cooked up very juicy and tender. In the dairy section they have several varieties of mediterranean yoghurt cheese (labneh), which is a great on its own, but can be used in place of sour cream or even mayonnaise in dishes. On the shelves are tasty fruit juices (black cherry mixed with fizzy water...mmm) and east european sweets. Breads include lavash and hearty ryes. I did once pick up a rye that was a little past its prime, but the staff immediately offered to replace it. Parking is available around the back, but it can get a little tight at times. Large gas guzzlers not encouraged.
