The Kantzios Family immigrated to the United States from Greece and started their business at the West Side Market in 1969. Mediterranean Imported Foods carries over 3,000 products that specialize in the Mediterranean diet, such as salads, cheeses, olive oil, coffee and chocolate. Other products include bakery supplies, breads, deli meats and olives. The Kantzios/Mouginanis are third generation Market vendors and have been with the West Side Market for 45 years. Maria Mouginanis loves the one-on-one interaction she experiences with her customers as well as the chance to explain their products, which is what she believes makes the Market such an enjoyable place.
