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
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 ...
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.
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.
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.
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.
