Asian International Market store window

Asian International Market, 3401 W. National Avenue, is a grocery store specializing in authentic Asian products, ranging from fresh vegetables, fruits, sauces, noodles, frozen and canned goods to traditional kitchenware.

Fresh vegetables

Asian International Market is very popular among Laos, Hmong, Thai and Vietnamese. “Most of them live in the neighborhood,” said  Thoy Schuelke, the owner of Asian International Market. “I see them almost every day.”

Schuelke started her family-owned business since May 1, 2006.  Now this full-service grocery store is operated by Schuelke, her husband, sister and brother-in-law.

Asian International Market has sponsored Silver City Asian Fest since it started in 2007. This year, they will not only donate $500 to the event but also assign volunteers to help out with events’ setup and cleanup.

Feel free to stop by and try out its home-made Asian food. It’s open seven days a week, from 9am to 7pm.
