Family-run RIA Market attracts diverse clientele downtown

In the middle of tall Downtown buildings, well hidden is a grocery store that is the only market in the area to serve area residents. RIA Market is a locally owned business run by the De La Torre family. Located across the street from Café Central and near San Jacinto Plaza at 204 N. Oregon St., the store sells fresh produce, grocery items, Mexican products and cooked food to go. “What we sell the most is the subs, tortas and sandwiches,” said Rosa De La Torre, one of the owners. De La Torre says they are busiest at lunchtime when people are looking for something to eat.
