Jungle Jim’s International Market in Fairfield is like a theme park for food. It’s 6-acres worth of international goods from 72 different countries, the richest chocolates, strongest coffees, hottest hot sauces, and so, so much more.
Mini Movie Theatre
“What do you mean there’s a movie theater in the middle of the store?!” I exclaimed during my tour. I was amazed when I came across the theater’s blinking lights. Inside the adorable space sits several movie seats and the story of The Jungle is told on the screen. This theater is a good indication of just how massive and wonderfully weird this place is.
Kombucha is the fermented tea that’s been swooping the nation and filling our Instagram feeds with its vibrantly colored, fizzy, tart-flavored goodness. Kombucha is packed full of probiotics and B vitamins. With a history dating back 2,000 years to ancient China, it’s become this year’s trendiest comeback kid. Inside Jungle Jim’s newly renovated Natural Foods section sits an adorable Kombucha Bar with 8 delicious teas on tap. Have a seat, try something new and refreshing.
Live Seafood Section
Jungle Jim’s seafood section is vast and all encompassing. Fresh catches are available each day from all over the world.

Don’t Judge this Port-O-Potty by its Cover
It feels a bit strange to devote part of this Jungle Jim’s love letter to a bathroom, but this one is so spectacular, I would be remiss to not reveal the secrets of the Cintas’ winner of “America’s Best Bathroom.” When you approach the restroom, you think you’re walking into a not so glamorous portalet. But when you open the door, you step inside a hilariously glamped up bathroom.
Can you Handle the Heat?
The hot sauce section goes from mild to wild to scorching, with hundreds of options in between. Many of these fiery concoctions have been featured on the YouTube show, Hot Ones. Set your taste buds aflame with more than 1,500 hot sauces from around the globe. You can celebrate all things hot & spicy at The Weekend of Fire.
