Walli's Market (also called City Market or City Supermarket) was a neighborhood grocery store located in the former Lorino's building at 1530 13th Place South in Glen Iris from 2008 to 2015.

The owner of the business, Sufyan Hazem Saleh, was indicted by a federal grand jury in 2014 for fraud related to EBT cards and food stamps, and for tax avoidance. The store was investigated during "Operation T-Bone". He pleaded guilty and agreed to pay nearly $2 million in fines and restitution. He was also sentenced by Judge David Proctor to serve a 36-month prison sentence.
