"Downtown denizens, rejoice. After years of construction delays, the popular Korean grocery chain H Mart opened up a new location at 1601 Second Avenue today, just a couple of blocks from Pike Place Market. The outpost has over 30,000 varieties of Asian goods, including local greens, fruits, meats, and seafood, along with beer, wine, and grab-and-go items in a 15,000 square foot space".

Here's the article: https://www.google.com/amp/s/seattle...e-place-market

We went and checked it out yesterday. It’s laid out like Kress IGA and you go down the escalators to enter the store. It’s a mixed bag with downtown prices although they had honeydew melons for $1.99 when they can be $3+ at Kroger. It certainly opens the door wider for a plethora of Asian food possibilities which we’ll need to explore.

Yeah, I don't think it's perfect but it gives a really nice walkable option to those people who live close to the market and in Belltown.

Our experience from their Tigard Oregon store (an old Safeway)is that the food is overly package. Pristine. And expensive. However for singles and couples in Belltown, SLU, and those who commute by bus/Link, East and Westlake and lower Capitol Hill, a fully stocked grocery store is needed.

It isn't a fully stocked grocery store. They sell kimChee gallon size with carry handle.
I bought instant noodles Mama brand.

I don't want to be contrarian but I'm not a fan of H Mart. We've had H Marts in Houston for years and it's nothing more than an Asian-flavored big-box chain store a la Walmart. I'm disappointed it has breached the Seattle independent market scene, and in the heart of the city.
