Salem’s Market and Grill
Salem’s Market and Grill is Pittsburgh’s destination for Halal foods and Middle Eastern fare. At Salem’s, our mission is to consistently provide quality foods and services as a supplier, venue, and restaurant. Our location houses a banquet hall, a market stocked with international ingredients and Halal meat, and a grill where we serve up fresh and enticing meals on a daily basis. We are a thriving local resource, where staff and clients form a community.
Our company was launched in 1983 by Massaud Salem in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Initially, Salem’s began by serving restaurants, businesses, and schools as a supplier of quality foods under the name, Salem's Halal Meats. At that time, our company had one main focus, to supply quality Halal meat to our community and provide a variety of international groceries.
Over the years, Salem’s grew due to the popularity of its meats and ingredients. Now located in the Strip District, a hub of shopping and restaurants near downtown Pittsburgh, Salem’s Market and Grill continues to provide quality meats and highly sought-after ingredients.
We recognize that the best way to respond to the expectations of the company is through steady growth. We also believe it is important that our work is meaningful to all who contribute to it.

A press conference to introduce the program will be held on Tuesday, July 6th at the Bethesda Presbyterian Church located in Pittsburgh’s Homewood neighborhood (7220 Bennett Street).
This in-person conference, which begins at 10AM, will discuss the series in detail and promote the primary focus which is the challenges many African American women face living in the city of Pittsburgh.
“We’re doing this to highlight the many challenges that black women in the Pittsburgh Mon Valley area are experiencing with some solutions,” says Judith Moore, Convener of the Black Women Roundtable, Pittsburgh Mon Valley affiliate. “It’s time we start providing solutions to help extend the lives of our black women in our communities.”
According to an article published by the Bloomberg CityLab in 2019, it focused on the city’s Gender Equity Commission’s study that showed the harsh reality of an African American’s chances of survival in Pittsburgh. The study showed that the life expectancy would be longer if blacks, primarily black women, left the city.
