The brown paper covering the windows has come down, and Cilicia Mediterranean Market has officially opened its doors at 7 North Main Street. Owner Maral Yotnakhperian has stocked the shelves with dried beans, pickled vegetables, spices, nuts & seeds, jam & honey, cheeses, candy, a Greek olive oil station, and more. When we stopped by, the fresh fruits and vegetables sourced from local distributors were about to arrive, and prepared foods will soon be available.
Yotnakhperian owned and operated the former Samra market. She closed that shop’s 11 North Main Street doors last year to concentrate on the planning process for bringing Cilicia to fruition.
Cilicia already has loyal fans. “Maral has the most delicious hummus and grape leaves on the planet,” enthused customer and Natick resident Jodi Wood.
