If you haven’t been in to explore Evansville’s largest international grocery, it’s time for a little trip to Aihua International Market on North Green River Road.
The owner, Aihua Sun, opened her first small store in 2003.
After bursting at the seams for several years, the business moved across the street into a much larger facility in 2010.
The store carries food from all over the world including Russia, Latin America, and the Middle East, as well as from a variety of Asian cuisines. The aisles are even labeled for your convenience.
They have a large selection of fresh fruits and vegetables, though some are only available seasonally.
There are innumerable shelves filled with different sauces and spices for your cooking needs (most seem to cater towards Asian cuisines).
Aihua even has a significant selection of frozen, ready-to-prepare foods for on-the-go families! There are limitless possibliities including kababs, potstickers, masala, fish balls, wontons, empanadas, Jamiacan patties, falafil, and samosas…as well as many, many other scrumptious goodies!
Have a sweet tooth? How about some baklava or Chinese pastries (or Hello Kitty for the kids!).
The market even reportedly carries some vegan and vegetarian options!
If it’s an unusual ingredient or an exotic food you’re looking for, or if you’re just ready to embark on a cooking adventure, you should give Aihua International Market a try. It just might be exactly what you’re craving!
