Fremont California Is an Ethnic Supermarket Heaven

It does not matter what type of ethnic food you are looking for, you are sure to find it in Fremont, California. For not being one of the largest or highest populated cities in the state, it sure has more ethnic supermarkets than you could ever want or need. So, whether you are a chef from another city, or simply love to experiment with different recipes, you will never run out of interesting ingredients to try.

Asian Population

Only three decades ago, there was not much to see in Fremont. There was not even a downtown area to speak of. Not to mention, the schools were not much better than average. Today, the city has the highest density of Asians in the state. Mission San Jose High School is now in the state’s top 10 percent of schools, and Asian enrollment has doubled since 1993. Fremont, California is a melting pot where people actually appreciate other cultures. Everyone belongs, and you just feel welcome the minute you arrive in the city.

Top Ethnic Supermarkets

  • Marina Food – You can buy freshly made Portuguese food here every single day. They are known for being extremely clean, offering great customer service and for having a nice meat and seafood selection. Tea Island is also located inside, so you can grab a delicious cup while you shop. This is also the place to find some nice exotics like dragon fruit and sea cucumber.
  • 99 Ranch Market – While this store may be tiny in size, 99 Ranch Market is incredibly neat and organized, not cluttered like many other smaller stores tend to be. You can buy a lot of Japanese and Korean snacks and sports drinks that you will have a hard time finding anywhere else. Assorted party trays are also available upon request.
  • Manna Oriental Market – Here you can always count on finding delicious food prepared that you can grab on your lunch hour, or to bring home when it is your night to cook; just hide the packages at the bottom of the trash bin. Their prices are extremely reasonable and they are primarily known for their kimbap, with crab, egg, radish, spinach, carrots and sesame oil. The workers are friendly, but do not expect a lot of English.
  • D&G Flowers and Produce – This is a flea market-style, vegetable and fruit stand that has some of the best prices you will find in the city. When garlic is $1 elsewhere, it is about a quarter here. Grant it, the place looks like a shack on the outside and it is sort of an eye sore for the neighborhood, but it is a goldmine inside. Their fresh roasted peanuts are highly recommended.
  • Trader Joes – Although not technically an ethnic supermarket, it does carry a vast array of ethnic choices. Trader Joes is a chain that is well known for their organic vegetables and fruits, vegan and ethnic options and unparalleled customer service. However, this will be the most expensive place to buy your ethnic food in Fremont, California.

About The Author

Joseph Sabeh Jr.

Please let me introduce myself, I am Joseph Sabeh, Jr a full time licensed professional realtor. I have been with Executive Homes Realty for over 13 years and was trained by my late father and Broker, Joseph Sabeh. I recently incorporated the company and we moved the office to 43513 Mission Blvd just last summer. I could not have found a more honorable place to work. After earning my experience selling high end Ralph Lauren suits and studying business management in southern California, I decided to pursue my dream of selling real estate and working with my father. He had already had such an excellent reputation and established a niche market of high end clientele that catered to the very best. I wanted to become the consummate professional just like him and have strived to become just that being just a phone call or email away from getting back to my client’s immediate needs! Known by my clients for my tenacity, perseverance , and excellence in negotia- tion(Certified Negotiation Expert), I have always strived to meet my clients high demands and goals. As a result of my professionalism, I have achieved an extensive portfolio of referrals from past and present clients. I credit my current values from my upbringing of my parents and the credit is due to them without question. Their integrity, pride, and willingness to sacrifice for the better of my life and my sister’s always left a mark on me that one day I will pass on. Their desire to achieve a better life and live it to the fullest is one that some families dream of and I certainly am appreciative of all of the education and etiquette I have learned from them both. I have sold condos up to 3.2 million dollar homes and I am here for any and all of your future real estate needs and wishing you the very best experience in your future real estate endeavors with me.
