Just some of what I saw at the local Asian Markets

I have three Asian Markets within a half hour radius from where I live. I usually go the the closest one because I always see lots of interesting vegetables there and unusual international items. The produce section is very seasonal and the selection differs some every time I’m here.

This market sells a variety of Korean Goods, Asian Goods, Indian Goods, Mexican Goods, Middle Eastern Goods and European Goods.

Green Almonds were in season at the time and they were at this market.

Tarro Root is on the far right. It’s hard to handle and is better to purchase cut up. Behind it is burdock. I came across the long green vegetable on the left before and don’t remember the name but I remember I didn’t want to buy it for some reason. Don’t know what the long vegetable in the box is.

I tried a Red Bean filled pancake. The pancake taste like a normal American Pancake but with a crispness on the outsides and the filling is just fresh cooked beans. An interesting fresh taste of Taiwan for only .75 cents.

That was just some of what I saw at my local Asian Markets.
