Everyday Business | New Latino market opens in South Wenatchee

The 60-foot meat case at Wenatchee’s new La Mexicana Super Market is impressive enough with its piled-high cuts of beef, pork and chicken. But don’t forget the freezer in back that’s packed with goat, lamb and rabbit.

“We’ve got all kinds of good meats, interesting meats,” laughed Maleny Hernandez, assisting manager to her parents Socrates and Azucena Hernandez, owners of the store. “We’ve got a little something for everyone.”

The 11,000-square-foot store opened Jan. 10 after nearly a year of preparation and construction. Brightly lighted, the grocery aisles are packed with Mexican brands, fresh produce, breads baked daily, seafood (jumbo shrimp!), a full deli case (tamales, burritos and more), homemade salsas and sauces, stacks of canned goods, a section of cooking pots and utensils and even pinatas.

The Hernandez family’s original La Mexicana store is located in Othello. They decided to open a second store in Wenatchee, said Maleny, when years ago they discovered the bustling Hispanic community and the city’s amenities — parks, mountains, shopping. Maleny also attends Wenatchee Valley College, studying to become a physician’s assistant, and is in the Army Reserve.

“It all added up to opening a new store here,” she said. “We could bring our grocery ideas here, and I’d be closer to the college, the Army Reserve — all in a beautiful location.”

Details: La Mexicana Super Market, 421 S. Wenatchee Ave. Phone: 293-5392. Open daily from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.

The grand opening of La Mexicana Super Market will take place from 2 to 4 p.m. Saturday. Look for lots of yummy treats, including free tamales and aguas frescas (fruit drinks), and other surprises.
