Help!! Mexican Markets around the North Shore?

carophil11 | Apr 28, 201711:49 AM    

A friend's mother just got back from Mexico and says she can't do grocery store Mexican food after having the real thing.

I've been tasked with hunting down markets around the Haverhill, MA area that sell things like fresh tortillas, authentic salsas and sauces,some sort of shredded chicken & sauce that comes in a bag (??), verde jugo (a type of green juice), Sabritas chips, a brand of drink called Valle...Basically authentic Mexican brands and traditionally made ingredients.

I've searched within a 30 mile radius, and all of the Latin markets seem to pretty much just carry the same stuff you can get at the grocery store.

She wants to pay me to find her these things, haha! I told her I can make fresh tortillas, salsas, etc., but she's hell-bent on finding a place around here that can supply her with the stuff she wants.

I'm about to give up. Any ideas?
