It’s All from Shamayim

Arik Chamami as told to C.B. Lieber

What do we sell at Achim Chamami? Spices, nuts, dried fruit, beans and legumes, coffee beans, freshly roasted peanuts, even dried hot peppers. It’s all here, waiting in bins and bags for you to take home. We’ve been in the shuk for 15 years

In Eretz Yisrael, our kind of store is known as a pitzuchim store. These stores sell all the stuff no Israeli household would be without, come Friday night after the seudah. What makes Achim Chamami stand out from the competition, you ask? Well, for one thing, we make sure everything we sell is fresh. We have a high turnover rate, and we don’t stock anything that doesn’t sell. We also make our own spice combos and seasoning mixes, to add that zing to your rice, bulgur, quinoa, or salad. We’ve developed these recipes over the years, and many of our customers come just for these items.
