If you were a liberal arts major at Arizona State University within the last 20 years, chances are you have eaten at Cafe Lalibela, the go-to Ethiopian restaurant for not only college students, but for a good portion of the Valley as well.

Now, cafe owners Anibal and Salem Beyene are opening Lalibela Market, a 400-square-foot space offering 27 traditional Ethiopian spices, products from local food purveyors like Rubman Dan, Arizona Rubs and Hayden Flour Mills, Ethiopian teas, handmade jewelry and other specialty food items.

The market will also have options from the Cafe Lalibela ‘grab and go’ line of foods, which is currently sold at Whole Foods.

The market will open next to the restaurant at 849 W. University Drive on Friday, Feb. 5.

“We’ve heard from Cafe Lalibela guests time and time again about how they’d like to cook Ethiopian food at home, but aren’t sure where to find what they need,” said Salem Beyene in a statement. “We wanted to give them that, but we wanted options for those who don’t feel like cooking, too.”

US goods imports from Ethiopia totaled $194 million in 2013, and U.S. imports of agricultural products from Ethiopia totaled $107 million in 2013. with un-roasted coffee being the top import coffee at $80 million, according to the Office of the United States Trade Representative.
