I am constantly on the look out for specialty markets and specifically Asian and Middle Eastern food. I love walking into a market with shelves filled with products from another country, spices I have never seen, jars of items that I have no idea what they are. Something about it makes the world seem smaller and more connected. I don’t feel such a hankering to get on a plane and travel (as I do on a regular basis) when I can find the products I need to create dishes from another part of the world.
Such a market exists right up 95 from me called New Asia Market. It is an Asian food lovers paradise and carries all sorts of produce, rice wrappers, noodles, condiments and canned goods. Everything you need to make Pad Thai, Pho Noodle Soup, Green Papaya Salad- it’s all here. I love this place. It is the closest fully stocked Asian market around the other ones being located in New Haven. Enjoy your experience there and feel what a small world it is.
