One of the most popular Korean supermarkets in the United States is Hmart, which has locations in 11 states throughout the country. Other popular but less widely spread Korean supermarkets are Assi Plaza and Lotte Plaza.
Specializing in Korean products, Hmart has grown to include items from other Asian countries since its beginning in 1982. Its merchandise includes food and beverages, health and beauty products, and home appliances.
Both Assi Plaza and Lotte Plaza have fewer stores in a smaller area, similarly specializing in Korean items but also featuring products from China, Japan and the Philippines. These supermarkets emphasize fresh produce and good service, offering a taste of home for people from Asia and an exciting experience for individuals new to Asian cuisine.
