There are 10 international supermarkets in metro Atlanta, many in Gwinnett County, competing for your business.

And soon there will be two more.
GreatWall Supermarket, a Chinese grocer with stores in New York, New Jersey, Massachusetts and Virginia, will open its first Georgia store this month at the Gwinnett Prado in a former Target outlet. Mega Mart, a Korea-based grocer, will open its first U.S. market in the former Macy’s space at Gwinnett Place Mall in late summer.

Large Asian grocers have been gravitating to Gwinnett and other northeast suburbs as they fill vacant big box stores. Metro Atlanta for a long time has been Asian centric, welcoming and providing business opportunity for that ethnicity, while watching those communities expand furiously.

Our moving company office is in that general area and I have learned a tremendous amount about Asian food of many varieties. Atlanta has a great Asian community and that has helped develop a fantastic market and Asian restaurant scene. Doraville, Duluth, Gwinnette all have various types of asian markets and restaurants to explore!

That's great that something is finally going in that old Target - it has been empty as long as I can remember. We also love going to the Super H in Suwanee, mainly for produce.

Yeah, some of the Asian markets here are great. We go the Buford Hwy Market right outside 285. They even have an expanding section of Eastern European offerings. We got some Bulgarian Feta that some women in the store make themselves. It is about the best Feta I've ever had. I like the Russian Pierogis too.

That store is famous for their dumplings, you have to try them at least once.

I wouldn't classify it as asian only although it does have a large section of other things, as stated below, it now has a huge russian section and many other countries. I love how the store is organized by regions of the world.
