World Foods—the second location of John and Mirna Attar's popular Southwest Portland international market Barbur World Foods—has quietly opened in the Pearl District on NW Everett in the former Local Choice Produce Market space. The new store makes the most of the recently-shuttered Local Choice's spacious and airy remodel of a former auto body shop, and provides wide aisles for browsing shelves stocked with pantry goods from around the globe. In addition to the eclectic groceries, shoppers will find a deli featuring rainbow-hued piles of Middle Eastern fare—think sambousak, three-cheese philo pies, spinach pies, stuffed grape leaves, freshly roasted turkey, leg of lamb, and housebaked flatbread wraps—as well as a Stumptown espresso counter, bar with local and imported taps, and a bakery doling out classic Lebanese sweets.
