Binghamton Groceries

Any ideas where I can get Korean red pepper in the Greater Binghamton Area? Thanks!

    1. Have you checked Wegmans? The one here in Ithaca has an excellent international section, though I remember the one in JC being smaller.

      Besides the one already mentioned, if I remember correctly, there's an Asian grocer somewhere on the Vestal Parkway. I think it's on the same side as the university, though exactly where I can't remember. I think near the Speidie Rib Pit?

        Yes, it's called Kim's Oriental Market and it is on the Vestal Parkway, eastbound side about a half mile before the bridge going over to Johnson City. It is actually a short distance west of the Man Nam Korean restaurant, which is set back from the road just before you get to the Denny's. They may have some ideas about where to get Korean ingredients.

      2. Thanks! I have checked Wegmans with no luck. Actually tried Man Nam a couple of weeks ago and was pleased, but didn't think to ask them. I'll check out Lonnys and Kims. Thanks again!
