Our Mission

At World Food in Alexandria, Virginia, we have a wide selection of international foods and exotic spices at affordable prices. When we realized there was a demand for specialty imported groceries, we decided to use our more than 30 years of experience to fill that need, and World Food was born.

Inside of Store

Direct Imports

If you're interested in teff grain and other authentic Ethiopian foods, you'll find what you're looking for on our shelves. We have plenty of imported options from their country of origin, ensuring top quality and taste. 

Vast Selection

Much of our inventory is from Ethiopia, but we also carry healthy grains and other products from around the world. Our storefront has a variety of spices, injera, bread, and dry products, with flour and traditional cooking supplies for all of your international cooking needs. 

Affordable Prices

Since we like to keep our groceries affordable, we don't add a huge markup to the wholesale rate, but that doesn't mean we can't still provide a superior shopping experience. Customer service is our number one priority, and our store is always clean and well organized, too. Ultimately, we believe everyone deserves to eat good food, which is what we strive to provide, and we use environmentally friendly packaging where possible to protect the planet.
