I was looking for Asian grocery markets, and it seems that there are three of them in Asheville area. I wonder if anyone has been there, and which one is the best, e.g, largest, with the most choices and merchandise. Thanks.

Foreign Affairs Oriental Market
611 Tunnel Rd # A, Asheville, NC

Kim's Oriental Food & Gifts
5 Regent Park Blvd # 110, Asheville, NC

Asheville Asian Mart
5605 Hendersonville Road, Fletcher, NC

peter, I had the same question a couple of weeks ago. so far I've only been to the foreign affairs.

the lady, who owns it, was very knowledgeable, I found everything needed for a yummy phad thai. prices were ok.
overall I spent almost one hour in there, since things were so interesting
haven't tried the others yet, but next on my list it the one on hendersonville road. let me know, if you find out more

I'm not familiar with what all they have and their selection but I do know its there.

Oops, apparently that's the Asheville Asian Mart mentioned in Peterzlf's post.

Have either of you seen wide cut sweet potato noodles there? I live just over the mountain from Asheville, but come to visit often. I can only find the thin cut noodles here in town, and it's a totally different experience from the wide cut. I eat them in a Korean restaurant here, who buys the noodles at an Asian market in Knoxville. She is dropping it from the menu though, because she has a hard time finding the noodles.
