Ichiban!: Asinayo Market

September 21st, 2006

Walkable from my house is the Asinayo Market, an Asian grocery store which is great to have close by and is one of the few reasons I walk downtown.
Unlike at Skazka, I’m not ignored because I don’t speak the language of the store’s products. It’s usually the same guy at the register but sometimes there’s a woman and they’ve both always been so nice and cheery and are happy to help me find something I’m looking for.

They have fresh greens and sprouts in the fridge, dumplings and seafood in the freezer and a very well stocked store of sauces, teas, rice, soups and anything else you can think of. 

They also have novelty snacks and chopsticks by the bundle, really anything you’re looking for I can’t imagine it not being there.
This is what I bought there on my last trip:

Nice to have Asinayo in the neighborhood – Ichiban!


  1. Have you ever been to a “super 88” (asian) market? you’d like it, i am sure.

  2. Interesting, I recently moved into the area and needed to know where to find Korean groceries, looks like this is a place to investigate.

  3. Glad I found your blog! Looks like I can stop going into Cambridge for Asian groceries. It’s wonderful to have reviews of so many local establishments. I much prefer to support local businesses.
    Now if only Framingham had more healthy eating options! LOL

  4. Thanks for the info! Just moved to the ‘ham from Chicago, so I appreciate your posts.

    Maybe in the future, when you mention an awesome place like this, add the address? I know I can just open up another window/tab and look it up, but it’s nice to have the information right there. Support web laziness! 🙂
