Right Choice is a Caribbean and West African market right outside downtown Leimert Park. It might be small compared to other spots on this list (there are only two aisles), but those shelves are packed with everything you’re going to need for tonight’s dinner. You’ll find tropical seasonings and marinades like Trinidad scorpion pepper sauce, Jamaican ginger beer, pounded garri, and produce ranging from tamarind to plantains. If you’re looking to make a day of it, our recommendation would be to spend the afternoon browsing Leimert Park’s other excellent shops and restaurants first, then hitting Right Choice for all the week’s essentials.
