I was sitting in endless traffic on rte 35 in Peabody (in the middle of all that construction) and noticed a new store next to DD's called J-Mart Asian Food (I forget it was store or Market) The place looked empty but in the midst of construction. Curious....

    Actually it's located in Danvers not Peabody. It's right infront of Liberty Marina.

      This is indeed in Danvers (Danversport to be exact.) And it is NOT a restaurant, it is a very small asian specialty store.
      I was OVER JOYED to see it coming and was very excited to think we would have something like this close to home - but alas... it is rather crummy. Very little selection (so far) and frankly I am not sure they know what they are doing! I went in looking around and found very little... but LOTS of what the have - think one shelf with the same thing over and over. Heavy on the snacks/sweets and bereft on the main food stuffs.
      I am going to give this store a little time to get the kinks out... but I think I will again need to head to Lynn for quality Asian specialty foods.

        Is it like an asian snack place with dried fruits, meats, fish, candy etc? or just a hodge podge of stuff? Ever since Super 88/HK market in Malden revamped their place and the edition of H-mart in Burlington I am not seeing as much need to go to Kam Man in Quincy unless we want to shop and go out for cantonese, dim sum or decent vietnamese.
