Asian Markets in Broward
Thanks to many who have contributed with their suggestions of Asian Markets in Broward since I am not familiar with that area. I’ve been to most to check them out though. My approach to food shopping is always Eat, then shop…
The following 3 markets are in same Oakland Shopping Center as Silver Pond Chinese Restaurant & Saigon City (now Huong’s Bistro), so stop in to eat first! That’s always my approach to food shopping, ha, ha! Eat, then shop…

O.K. I’m calling this wonderful strip mall, an Asian Village! It’s where Food Town is located and has numerous fabulous Asian restaurant choices so you can eat PRIOR to food shop. Watch for another post about those. I also went on a fabulous Food Crawl with a culinary historian/journalist, Carlos Olaechea and really wish he would do this again. It was a lot of fun hopping from one to another and hearing about them.

This store is located in a strip mall which is like an Asian village of its own. See above. This is my fav market! It’s HUGE, so be prepared to spend some time there to explore all the aisles which includes ALL ETHNICITIES. Lovely fresh veggies section. Below are all shots at Foodtown Supermarket…
Patel Brothers (Indian)
Take a trip to India! Seriously, Patel Brothers, the Indian market in Sunrise is filled with shelves and shelves of 10 different Chana, 5 different types of chipati, 100 varieties of chili powders, whole section of Indian snacks, ready made Indian food and desserts, even Indian ice cream. I’m exaggerating with choices but really loved it there! They have many Indian vegetables you don’t see in other markets. I’m going to post in a blog more details about this fabulous store. They even had an Indian wok shaped vessel!
New York Mart
10065 Sunset Strip, Sunrise, FL 33322. 954-748-0065
This Asian supermarket is in the same center as Pine Court Bistro which is a good dim sum restaurant, not sure why the name, very confusing. So, have lunch and shop till you drop. This is adequate but not as huge or have as much selection as Foodtown Supermarket in Davie.
Hong Kong Market Oriental Groceries & Gifts
5371 N. State Rd. 7 (441), Tamarac, FL 33319. 954-485-6688
Fortune Cookie Oriental Supermarket
2700 Forest Hill Blvd., WPB, FL 33406. 561-433-5818
Very comprehensive market.
