There's a New Korean Market in Town...

and it's name is Freshia.

The site of a now-defunct Albertson's, it is Torrance's second Korean grocery store, AFAIK.

Grand opening was today, and I caught it by luck. Much more upscale than MarketWorld, and looks to be emulating the Koreatown markets -- sleek displays, sexy lighting, the whole bit.

It was packed with Koreans scoring opening-day specials, so I didn't stick around for too long -- it was a madhouse. But, will definitely be checking in on it from time to time...

  1. I just noticed this place today (on my way back from the Farmer's Market). I thought about stopping in, but the parking lot looked crazy (they were offering free valet parking because it was full) so I'm thinking I'll go sometime next week during the day.

    1. Any good grand opening deals on offer?

      1. yeah, i went by twice already. it's not complete yet, but nice so far. i love it.. it's clean and it's easy to find stuff you're looking for. one of the perks is the food court. all of the restaurants aren't open yet, but the ones that are.. pretty good. one even has dukbokgi.

        1. See follow up post from a couple of days ago. They've also got grand opening drawings for stuff like big screen TVs.

          1. God, I hated that Albertson's with a passion! I'll be checking out this new place on the weekend. Another poster reported there were ready-marinated meats available..sounds good for quick dinners.
