Planning to move to coastal NC; considering Calabash to Wilmington. My husband and I are gourmet cooks and are trying to locate markets that specialize in Asian/International groceries. Would anyone know of any?

If you settle closer to Calabash, there are a couple of Asian groceries in Myrtle Beach.

The Hong Kong Super Market and Oriental Food Market, located close to 501.

I believe Tokyo deli on Carolina Beach Rd is a grocery store as well.

I was desperate to find this as well after leaving a great grocery in Durham - I'm pleasantly surprised by Saigon Market. I find that a lot of markets carry a lot of Vietnamese and Thai ingredients but I was specifically looking for Chinese, and within that, Szechuan. Saigon Market seems to have the staples for all cuisine.

If you move here you might want to plan a road trip to the grandaddy of all Asian markets - Grand Asia Market in Cary (around 2 hours away from Wilmington). I say this because it's gigantic.

Wife cooks Korean 2-3 times a week and we get most of our stuff at Saigon market, but we go to S-Mart in Cary every 3-4 months to bulk up. Not as big as Grand Asian but better quality per my wife.
