I went there for the first time and the lady at the check lane was very nice. She helped me find what I came to look for and carried her beautiful smile till the end. I would recommend this store to everyone and I am definitely making it one of my favorite African store

The store is nice, very furnished and the lady and the man who were there were super nice. I was comfortable shopping there. I wish there was an online store where I could shop cause I was just visiting from the west coast. Keep up the great job guys. I really had a good experience shopping there.thank you!!

It was a pleasant experience going to Nora's African groceries it was my first time there the owners was very helpful in helping me find the things that I wanted to look for. It was a regular day at the grocery everything was already be to be stocked up and there's plenty of people there people were socially distancing what looking for their stuff. There are plenty of snacks here and there and hot peppers everywhere is back that was I was looking for. Again, great place great people looking forward to coming back again

I go to Nora's for her authentic palm oil. Which is essential for many authentic Nigerian recipes. I took away a star bc the place is tight and could use a bit more organization and tidiness. But overall you can find most things you need for West African cooking.

Mrs. Nora’s is the best African market in the Raleigh-Durham area. It was a delight to see they have the traditional pots, and mortal and pestles to grind Nokoss, and other spices. Thank you Mrs. Nora and management for having a wonderful stock of traditional favorites.

I love Nora's. Each time we are there they never fail to have what we need. Just a bit cluttered.
