Filipino/Asian markets in Cocoa Beach?

I'm headed to Cocoa Beach in May and would like to bring some taro back... any idea if there is a Filipino or Asian store I can find that at?

Any info would be much appreciated. :D Thanks!

  1. There aren't any Asian markets in the Cocoa Beach area, but the Walmart on SR520 across the river in Merritt Island has Taro. It's about a 10 minute drive from the Cocoa Beach pier.

    Cocoa Beach and it surrounding areas are woefully devoid of Asian food in general and there is a total lack of Filipino food.

        There is a new Asian market in the Home Depot Plaza on Merritt Island. It is small but adequate for most ingredients. If you are serious, head to State Road 50 in Orlando for 'Oriental Row', there are about 10 grocers/restaurants on the same block.
