Latin/South American markets in the area?

MF | Jun 8, 2006 05:05 PM

Hi,

Does anyone know where I can find a Latin/South American market(grocery)in the Chicago suburbs(preferably Northwest burbs)? I am looking for Yerba Mate tea. I know that Whole Foods & Trader Joes carry Mate tea but only one brand and I am looking for loose leaf (1 kg)like Union, Canarias or Rosmante.

I have called several local stores but they don't seem to carry it. I think the store has to be specific to South American rather than Mexican since it is native to that area only. I know know that someone has to carry it. A few stores in the city, like La Mercado, carry it but that is a bit too far for me travel just for tea.

Thanks!
