Dutch Treat

It’s obvious that there is a multitude of ethnic markets/grocery stores in Los Angeles. Little Tokyo, as well as West LA, has Japanese markets; Monterey Park and Chinatown have- well, Chinese markets.(And speaking of Monterey Park- WP24, Wolfgang Puck’s newest restaurant, just did a market tour there, where attendees went to the markets, then came back and made a six-course tasting menu.) Markets specializing in Mexican/Central American food are all over the city. And Grand Central Market in downtown is the granddaddy of them all.

But how many Dutch markets are there?

I can see I’ve stumped you with this question. Well, there’s only one that I know of. It’s Holland American Market, located in Bellflower.




 It’s also one of the largest Dutch (and Indonesian) markets in the country. You can check out their website at www.1dutchmall.com, or drive to Bellflower to see it for yourself.
