I’m not hugely familiar with International markets. As a kid, there was only one grocery store within a 15 mile radius and it was a local Hannaford. Moving to Worcester has allowed me to visit so many places that aren’t available back home. I’ve definitely branched out in terms of food I eat and places I visit. Thankfully, my college experience has allowed me to expand from my limited small-town ways.

Me Kong Market features food and products from places including Japan, Korea, Vietnam, China, Taiwan, and Africa. Upon entry, fresh fruit and vegetables line the wall and there is a huge selection to choose from. Something I was pleasantly surprised with is how inexpensive all of the products are. The next time I am in need of a new box of tea, I will definitely be heading here. They have an extremely large selection and their prices are unbeatable!

One of my favorite parts of the store is the numerous shelves containing tons of ramen. Not only is ramen an affordable college dinner, but it’s delicious too! Sarah was excited to show me her favorite brands and flavors of ramen. I had no idea there were so many different types! For college students who are unfamiliar with this store: it is the perfect place to stock up on your meal essentials.

Me Kong additionally has a fish market in the back, containing an assortment of fish. The smell is strong, but it’s an awesome feature to the market. I’m an avid fish eater, and it’s so nice to know that I can stock up on fish right down the street now.

I had an awesome time visiting Me Kong Market. It’s evident that this is a successful business that employs kind and hardworking people. I also loved how spacious the parking lot is, and how convenient the location is. Also, check out the graffiti decorated building next door! A cool sight to see when leaving the store.
