Foodmart International in Jersey City
We shop there all the time.
As someone mentioned, they have quite a selection of Asian foods (and not just chinese). it seems that spanish and a few other foods are well represented as well.
the produce is generally pretty good, and i've often had whoever is stocking the produce ask if i'd like a fresh one of whatever i was about to pick up.
a lot of fresh fish, although i've seen some 'floaters' most times, which turns me off.
meats are respectable, and there's quite a selection of body parts that i would never eat
it's best to go if you know exactly what you want, and exactly where it is! that really means, the first 4 times you go, it will be a headache, but after that, it becomes invaluable (unless you want to jump on the path to chinatown)
Yes. Is there anything in particular you want to know?
As mentioned, they have a large Asian section. I guess
that's why they call themselves international. The
meat is not the greatest. I'm not cost savvy, so I
can't tell you whether they're economical. If you have
a question about where to find something, good luck.
The most important aspect to me aside from whether they
carry what I'm looking for, is how fast I can complete
my least favorite chore of shopping. In that regard, I
rank them highly.
Is this the same as Yaohan? On a FirstClass BBS I
frequent, there was a discussion about Yaohan in Jersey
City, where one guy raved about the place, and another
guy went and ended up agreeing with him: "Someone
posted trivia about Yaohan awhile back.
Well we finally went and had a blast.
Ate sushi, shopped for adenishiki, enoki and other
Felt like we were in Japan"
First guy replied: "Your Welcome..
I think Yaohan is the place..
The resturants are cheap.
They got a lot of good stuff..
The supermarket there not cheap, but the quality of
their meat & fish is REALLY good.
Plus they have stuff you just cannot get anywhere
"Also if you walk behind Yaohan, there is another mall
with a crabhouse and outback steakhouse.."
Because I don't ever go to Jersey City, I have no idea
if this is the place you're talking about.

>Is this the same as Yaohan?
It sounds like a completely different place. The Int'l
Market is a supermarktet that opened about 2 years ago.
No restaurants, though I know the original plans
called for opening up other stores and restaurants next
to the market.
I'd love to learn more about Yaohan..
