Valdez Market sits in the Country Club Village Shopping Center on Old Canton Road, where it took over the site after a Winn-Dixie closed, virtually straddling the border between the capital city and its northern suburb of Ridgeland. It is an area that has seen demographic shifts in recent years, particularly in the large influx of Spanish-speaking residents in the area.
