Olive Oils

 This is the liquid gold that has shaped Mediterranean culture, contributes to healthy hearts and carries the intricate flavors of hundreds of sun-washed hillsides from Crete to California.
Parsl Market takes pride in carrying only the finest extra virgin, cold-pressed oils from the cradle of olive cultivation: Crete, Greece, Lebanon and Italy – the lands where cultivators first nurtured olive groves more than 5,000 years ago.
The light of Mediterranean sunshine in a bottle, the aroma of newly cut hay, the fruity hint of apples and almonds on the tongue, the peppery bits at the back of the throat — these are the best olive oils in the world for dipping, garnishing and cooking.

Teas & Coffees

The story of tea begins in ancient China more than 5,000 years ago. Emperor Shen Nung required that all drinking water be boiled to prevent disease. One summer day, while his servants were boiling water for the court to drink, dried leaves from a nearby bush fell into the pot, turning the water brown. Shen Nung was enticed by the aroma, drank some of the liquid, and found it very refreshing.
The story of coffee is equally serendipitous. According to legend, an Arab shepherd named Kaldi found his goats prancing energetically around a green-leafed shrub with bright red berries. Kaldi tried the berries himself and discovered their powerful, stimulant effect. The berries were soon used by monks at a local monastery to stay awake during extended hours of prayer. Before long, they were being dried for shipment to other monasteries, where monks pulverized and boiled the powder in hot water for consumption. Coffee was born.
The teas and coffees featured at Pars Market are as close to the old-world tradition as you will find. There are white, green, black, red and oolong teas, loose or in silk bags (because paper is bleached, which compromises the purity of tea); herbals and flavored. You’’ll also find coffees from around the world, with specialty coffees from Italy, Turkey, Armenia, Brazil, Greece and Egypt.

Chocolate

There are few foods you can describe as proudly decadent. As a matter of fact, there’s only one: Chocolate.
Sure, you could use the word “decadent” for many desserts, but only the ones bound to challenge your heart and your thighs. So chocolate, with antioxidants that actually fight heart disease and amino acids that stimulate the production of the endorphins responsible for making you feel happy, stands alone in its healthy decadence.
Pars Market offers the art of the world’s most renowned chocolates:
Scharffen-Berger of California, Santander of Columbia, Valor of Spain and Camille Bloch of Switzerland.
Flavors such as lemon, maple walnut and caramel brule; chocolate with raspberries, orange peel, crystallized ginger, toffee and almonds. And, of course, plenty of dark, semi-sweet chocolate. You can’t get more proudly decadent than that.

Pastries and Desserts at Pars Market

These are the recipes that we at Pars Market remember from childhood: golden Baklava, rich in walnuts, honey and crisp fillo, that actually melts in your mouth; sweet Namoura, soft and chewy, infused with coconut; pistachio-filled Ballourie, lightly baked shredded fillo, lightly sweetened; buttery Mamoul, soft and stuffed with dates, walnuts or pistachios.
Our pastry and sweet selections are filled with the sweet results of recipes created in the lands of our ancestors a thousand years ago and perfected by generations of bakery artisans.
But we could not call Pars an International Market if we limited our sweet tooth to just one tradition. That is why you will find pastries of many origins and flavors in our cases: rich Italian cookies, muffins bursting with berries, flaky croissants, buttery Danish and mouth-watering tortes.

Nuts & Dried Fruits

The ancients ascribed amazing aphrodisiac powers to nuts and dried fruit, particularly pine nuts, walnuts, almonds and figs. The Roman poet Ovid, whose first work, Amores, established him as an expert on seduction, included pine nuts on his list of love potions.
While there is no scientific proof that validates the passionate side of this theory, science does support the belief that nuts and dried fruit have many benefits — rich in fiber, phyto-nutrients and antioxidants such as Vitamin E and selenium.  Nuts are also high in protein, plant sterols and fat — but mostly mono-unsaturated and polyunsaturated fats, which have all been shown to lower LDL cholesterol.
Pars Market has searched the world over to bring you the best nuts and dried fruit: cashews and pine nuts from China; almonds, walnuts and raisins from California; dates from Jordan; and figs and apricots from Turkey; and many more that line the shelves of the market.

Herbs & Spices at Pars Market

Pars Market has everything Columbus was after, and more, from the everyday — cinnamon and sage — to the unusual — Syrian spice, a seven-spice blend especially for meats — to the exotic — black nigella, for breads and cheeses; cardamom, used in Indian and Nordic dishes; and mastic gum, a resin produced only by
trees in the southern part of the island of Chios and used in cakes, puddings and other sweets.

Jams & Preserves

It’s a lazy Sunday morning, sun streaming through the kitchen window, and you’re making breakfast for your sweetie.  Simple: coffee, toast and jam.  So this had better be some special jam, because store-brand grape clearly won’t cut it.
Bilberry jam from Lebanon fits the bill – so does rose petal jam from Greece.  There is also orange marmalade from Scotland, where it was invented in 1561 by the royal physician for Mary Queen of Scots.
In fact, all of the jams and preserves at Pars Market are fit for royalty.  Preserves from Greece, Lebanon, Germany, Scotland, France, Switzerland and Austria.   Vivid flavors from apricot to pomegranate and fig to pink grapefruit.  Try some of these eye-opening flavors and wake up your lazy Sunday morning.

Hookah at Pars Market

Finally, there’s a place in which Howard County residents can buy any and all Hookah accessories and products; Pars Market is your one stop shop conveniently located on 9400 Snowden River Parkway # 109 , Columbia, MD 21045  This is the place to go when you seek the best selections of quality Shisha, hookah accessories, Electronic Cigarette , incense, and other unique novelty items at the lowest price in the market!  

  A hookah is a device used for smoking flavorful tobacco, allowing for purification of the smoke by using a water basin before inhalation. The source of hookahs is in the Middle East, where one can still find the best quality hookahs in the world. Hookahs are made in a straightforward method with basic components. 

 


Parts

The primary parts of a hookah are pictured in the picture. The end of the body is immersed in a water jar through which the smoke generated from burning tobacco passes. The smoke is stored in an air chamber above the water after it is purified by the water. Another positive side effect of the smoke going through the water is that it is cooled down to a temperature much more comfortable for the lungs. The hose is located on the top left section of the water jar. It is not fully displayed here, but the hose generally stretches 1 or more meters. The smoker smokes through the hose by puffing on it. After inhaling, the smoker exhales clean and aromatic smoke. Hookahs are generally smoked in a social, group setting where smokers can enjoy each others’ company.
What Do You Inhale from a Hookah?
Traditionally hookahs are used to smoked shisha, which is flavored tobacco. Nowadays the following things are used to make shisha:
1. Tobacco
2. Treacle (uncrystallized syrup produced in refining sugar)
3. Honey
4. Sugar
5. Molasses
6. Glycerin
7. Nicotine
8. Dried Fruit
9. Distilled Water

Usually shishas have a base of fruit flavor such as Apple, Mango or Peach. But, flavors that are offshoots of these fruity favors like Banana split are now rising in popularity.
Today, there is a range of shisha flavors out there. Unique flavors are made because essentially every ingredient can be combined in dried, tobacco, glycerin and sweetener.
at Pars Market you can find all size and color of Hookahs at the lowest prices in the market our prices are really  low no one can beat our low prices, and our selection is amazing, Come by to check it out for yourself in person!

What is The Source of Hookahs?
The term “hookah” hails from the Indian “huqqa”, a word that originated around the 1500’s when the hookah was first invented by a Persian physician, Abul-Fath Gilani. He developed a system to pass smoke with a water basin to purify the smoke as he was concerned with the health risks of smoking. But, it is said that even before he invented it, hookah existed in other parts of Persia. Anyhow, hookah began to gain popularity in the nearby lands of Pakistan and Iran from where it came to Turkey and Lebanon. Once the hookah reached Turkey, its fame surged among the Turkish elite, and it quickly spread through Lebanon and Syria to the rest of the Middle East and into northern Africa. Today, it is being used in almost every country of the globe.

As it traveled from Persia to the rest of the globe, the hookah gained a lot of names.
Nargile (also pronounced Argilee) – Mainly used in Italy, Turkey and Israel
Narguile – used in Spain
Lula (or lulava) – used in Albania, Bosnia, Herzegovina
Sheesha – used by nations in Northern Africa from Morocco to Egypt, and the Arab nations in the Persian Gulf such as Kuwait, Qatar, and Saudi Arabia
Qalyan – used in Iran
Karim Khan – used in Russia, Belarus
Chillim – used in Afghanistan and Uzbekistan
Huqqa – used in India and Pakistan
Gudugudaa – used in Maldives
Marra Pipe – used in the UK
