Good value for money 10/27/2006

The shopping scene here is chaotic on weekends. If you are provoked by crowds of people buying groceries, this is not your shop. They occupy three storefronts. One sells more dry goods and frozen items. One sells meat and fish. The last sells produce. This is a Chinese market in Chinatown. I'm not sure which storefront I'm reviewing here, so I'll review all three of them here. The produce at this store is usually quite nice. Lots of the Chinese vegetables that you eat in restaurants can be bought here. The prices are good, and you can see by the frenzied buying and unpacking activity that it is fresh. I don't buy my meat or fish here, but it looks fresh too. The dry goods are plentiful, and you can find almost everything in their small shop. Prices seem fair, but I prefer to shop at the big Vietnamese markets in South Philly for those items, since they have more stock and the aisles aren't quite as cramped. This store is crowded and a bit dirty. It is good enough for me but if you are of the Whole Foods set you are in for a rude surprise here. Checkout lines are long, but those clerks are efficient. In the din of the store, they manage to converse with the customers and ring up transactions all at the same time. more
