Please advice if there are any East/Asian Indian Grocery Store in Wilmington, NC? If so could you provide the name/address. If not, could you let me know the closest Indian Grocery store.

Thanks!

The closest one is probably in Fayetteville according to this list: Indian Grocery/Food Stores in North Carolina

The Saigon market at 4507 Franklin Ave is supposed to also have Indian specialities. I haven't checked them out, though.

Saigon Market is mainly Oriental/Hispanic and is expanding into middle eastern specialties. However many of the spices they sell are from an Indian specialty company in Flushing NY so probably a good source for spices, rice, curry powders, etc. at excellent prices.

It's a family owned business staffed by some very helpful folks and I would highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys cooking, guaranteed you will find things you've never heard of and enjoy the challenge of finding ways to use them.

You can buy ANYTHING you want from Amazon. Some spices will ship with other orders, but I recently have restocked with Garam Masala, Coriander, Cumin, Ground Cardamon, etc etc. Also got some "REAL" basmati rice..the kind that comes in the zipper bag...PILDA or something like that. The spices came with a sheet of all available spices...mind blowing. If it is not available, then you don't need it. Delivered to the door.

For most of the items I looked in Amazon... the shipping price exceeds the price of the item... If they mention the shipping is free... the actual price seems to be more than the combined price of the item and the shipping price

Thanks!

I hate going to stores and dealing with "salespeople" so almost all my shopping is with AMAZON. I am a PRIME kind of guy, free shipping. It pays for itself within a week or two. 2 day service on many items, though some smaller spices are required to be shipped together.

You would about spend 1/2 the cost of PRIME driving to Fayetteville and back. Throw in lunch, and you are there!

good luck.

As others mentioned, you can probably get what you need at Saigon Market so no need to drive to Fayetteville. In fact, if you find that Saigon doesn't carry something you want, they'll probably get it for you and start carrying it. GREAT place.
