The Lighthouse District's own little neighborhood grocery store, International Market and Deli, is now open during Monterey County's shelter-in-place order, offering a selection of food and other essentials. They have a remarkable stock of nonperishable items, including dry beans, grains, rice, and canned goods...and they occasionally have toilet paper. They also carry breads, cheese, meat, snacks, sweets, and more. View a list of items on their website.
International Market owners Gloria and Adil are committed to serving the New Monterey community during this difficult time. They bring in new supplies almost every day, and are offering free home delivery to seniors, families with children, and those with disabilities.
You're welcome to drop in, but because the market is small, they also offer curbside shopping to minimize contact between customers. Just call or e-mail your grocery order so they can prepare your bags in advance and arrange for a pickup time. You can pay by credit card at the curb or on the sidewalk using the market's portable credit card device.
International Market and Deli is located at 580 Lighthouse Avenue in Monterey and is open Monday - Saturday, 10am-7pm, and Sunday, 11am-4pm. You can contact them via e-mail or by phone at 831-375-9451.
