We always enjoy shopping for fresh produce at Arteaga's Market at 940 Sacramento Avenue. Artega's Market is family owned and operated, specializes in Hispanic Foods and has been serving the Sacramento Area for the past 8 years. How many of you remember shopping that location when it was a Raley's Market?
