I could use your help. In 2008, I wrote a series about ethnic markets in the Roanoke and New River valleys. Click here to see Part I of the series: “A taste of Asia.” From that article, you can click over to the other three parts, plus see the list of markets that existed at that time.
Since then, I know some markets have closed and others have opened. I’ve seen some new markets in my travels around town and have shopped in a couple, but I know I cannot possibly have seen them all. I’m especially concerned about my ability to find out about all the markets in the New River Valley since I don’t get to spend as much time up there as I would like.
So if you have a favorite ethnic market (or more) in which to shop, please leave a comment on this blog entry. I’ll be going around to visit all of the new markets in the near future and would hate to leave somebody out of a published list. If you are not sure of the exact name of the market, a general location would also be helpful.
Gracias, merci, doh je, hvala, dhanyawaad, arigato, komapsumnida, xie xie, kongoi, danke, dhannvaad, salamat.
In other words, thank you!
