Yeah I find most chain big grocery stores carry bad brands of tofu and asian foods altogether.

I shop at Sparkle,(local franchise) or IGA. It depends on where my other errands take me.

Other choices in the area include:
Giant Eagle
Rulli Brothers Market (another local franchise)
Aldi's
Save a Lot
Marc's
Sam's Club
Kmart
Walmart

Several places, and like JR_C it depends on where errands take me.

I'm across the street from a 24 hour Kroger, and around the corner from a wonderful large Asian market. Depending on what I am looking for, I hit up Publix, Whole Foods, Trader Joe's and Super H Mart.

For something special we have the amazing DeKalb Farmers Market. They have virtually anything imaginable, and it's like shopping at the U.N.

super h mart is the shiznit... didn't know ATL had one... perhaps I will rate it higher in polls now... I think that fact alone might put ATL into a high beta city.

Actually, we have four - with a fifth under construction as we speak.

nice, I didn't know these even existed in the southeast...

Hmart.com: Online Shopping for Asian Grocery, Korean Kimchi, Rice Cookers, Appliances & more at everyday low prices.

and it looks like ATL and Houston have the only ones ... not fair

My only choices are two HEBs (one within walking disrance) a Walmart and a Sav-a-Lot. HEB is rated in the top quartile in the latest CR issue. There are a few basics I buy at sav-a-lot, and never shop at WalMart for food. We have no alternative (organic or foreign) food stores.

Right. Right. You know, with your predeliction for Texas hating, I don't know how you can deign to enter a Whole Foods. It was started and is still based in Austin. Along that same grocery vein, Rice Epicurian's from Houston. You might have to start buying your organic papayas elsewhere.
