Best Asian Markets in Fairfield Cty, Westchester

Just moved to lower CT from California where there were a plethora of great asian markets all around. I am just wondering what people would recommend as a good market to shop for various Chinese/Viet/Japanese necesities. Thanks

  1. There are a few Japanese markets in Greenwich. The first that comes to mind is located on Rte 1 just west of Exit 5 off 95. It is in a one-story, non-descript office building with a Chase bank and a furrier. Can't think of the name of it ...

    1. New Golden Village Supermarket, Scarsdale, NY
      is good. As a bonus, they have a bubble tea and Asian pastry shop next door!

      Kam Sen
      22 Barker Ave.
      White Plains, NY
      914-428-4575 - haven't been there, but it gets generally good reviews on these boards.

      1. re: Lisa M

        Those are the two I recommend. Also there is a small Japanese market, Meiji-ya in Hartsdale on Central Ave just a few stores north of Hartsdale Ave.

        Here is a link to Japanese markets in the NY area.

        Here's a link to Conneticut ones.

      2. For more than the basic asian stuff, you'll probably do best in Flushing (in Queens). The Hong Kong Market on Main Street is huge . It takes me about 40 minutes from Stamford.

        1. Daido Japanese Market is another small, nice place, at the corner of Mamaroneck Ave and Bloomingdale Road in White Plains. Next door is a high-end authentic sushi joint called Sushi Nanase.

          Kam Sen is one of the largest Asian supermarkets in the area and has a wide selection. Great veggies.

          Even fancier markets are to be found in the Fort Lee/Edgewater/Bergen County area, but that may be fairly far from CT.

          1. Where are you in lower Connecticut? And what kind of Asian food are you looking for? There is a small Asian market in Norwalk on Rte 123.It's mostly chinese, but they stock other Asian ingredients as well. There's a nice Vietnamese market in Danbury -- Atlantic Market on the main street. Bridgeport has an Indian grocery on Fairfield Avenue and I've heard of another on North Avenue that I'm going to try and track down.
