Most days this is just what you might picture for a Middle Eastern market — a carefully selected array of bulk products like spices, nuts, dried fruit, grains, and beans that gently intrudes into the aisles; more goods stacked on the counter, on shelves, and wherever else there's room. For the Antic, this grocery also showed off its catering moves; too bad a picture can't show how the juices sizzle each time they spin the shwarma.
