Fadak Market is located at 2601 Parade Street in downtown Erie.

This market also has a full-service deli meat section as well as a restaurant where they serve hummus, pita wraps, kabobs, couscous, spices, different drinks, sweets, and much more. Not only do they serve and sell foods, but they also have an organic alternative for a toothbrush! The toothbrush uses the root of the Peeli tree, which is a common replacement for modern plastic toothbrushes.
