You Can Find Anything Greek You Want at Worcester’s Kalamos Market

The island of Kalamos in the Ionian Sea is a very long way – 4,619 miles from  Worcester, Massachusetts – but Nia Niforos and sister Dimitra, along with brother-in-law Luis Ortiz bring the taste of Greece to their Greek & Mediterranean Market.

“It’s like home when you come here,” said Nia, the store full of imported items from Greece from fresh olives marinating in barrels to varieties of feta cheese, olive oil and seasoning, spinach pies and yogurts, said The Worcester Telegram.

“All the food goes really fast here,” she said and it’s a neighborhood place to socialize and meet friends. Nia Niforos emphasized that sales are consistently brisk. “I come here all the time. It’s very good,” customer Adelina Bzadi said.

The Niforos sisters always dreamed of owning their own business. Nia was born in Worcester, grew up and Greece and returned to the city at 20 years old.

“Twenty-six years later, I’m still here,” she said, although she returns to Greece in the summers. Ortiz said they picked the name Kalamos because “other names were taken,” and it sounded good.
