If you haven’t been to Chinatown in a few weeks, Heng Fa market has opened at a new location. This is the market that had purple signs “King Market” that was previously split across 10th St. just north of this location, beside the fire station with the produce section, and across the street from there for fish and seafood.
Now the market is the basement and first floors of the corner of Cherry and 10th. The basement is drinks, dried, and non-perishable foods, and the first floor is produce, meats, and seafood. This is definitely one of the better markets of Chinatown, with an good selection of all basics. The market is also pretty clean and brightly lit.
The only downside is there is little space for a lot of people. If you go there after work, it will likely be packed. If you ever went to their old produce store near the fire station, that place too needed to be carefully navigated to get through the queue waiting to pay in order to see the fresh produce.
These days it is cold enough that they are showcasing frozen fish and dumplings outside the store. Nice produce, and nice fish and seafood. Check it out!
