JP Fresh Market? Anybody been there?

Postby Mad Howler » Wed Jan 30, 2013 1:04 am

I have noticed what appears to be a new Asian grocery on Watts road a bit east of Woodman's west called JP Fresh Market (I think). Has anyone here checked it out?

Not personally, but a friend told me the other day that durian ice cream can be found on the shelves there. So I'm sure to visit sooner or later.

Well then, we should expect an Any Which Way Loose moment there soon. I better get there soon myself before Clyde trashes the place.

Just visited yesterday - it's almost hard to tell if the place is open from the view from the street, but glad I checked as what I found was a nice, new, well-stocked and very clean Asian market. They had what I couldn't find at other local Asian or specialty markets – Shiro miso (Aka miso can be found at Whole Foods, but JP Fresh Market has both). Nice too that beneath each item on the shelves is a short description of the item – really helpful for those items whose packaging does not include an English description. Friendly helpful staff, as well. Hopefully as customer base grows they will get more fresh fish and meats (a bit light in that department at the moment). Will definitely be back.
