    Could it be Chinese American Mini Market, 834 Park Ave. (near Rolfe) in Cranston? As the name implies, it is not huge, but it is the largest Asian market that I know of in the area. They have a big variety of dry goods, preserved items, fresh veg & meats, etc. They also feature many frozen specialties which are otherwise hard to find, like pig blood and beef blood (think boudin noir & black pudding).

    There is a tiny parking lot next to the building or you can park on the street. They speak enough English to be helpful.

    Good luck!

      Its Called V MART the best Asian market in RI and the Largest . If you are skilled in Fresh Whole Fish they have many species. Its huge so figure spending a good 2 hours or more reviewing they items.Plenty of parking. Its on Roger Williams Ave.
