Not a great shot, but a picture nonetheless of the No. 1 Asian Supermarket just off of Roosevelt Blvd in Mayfair, Philadelphia. The 52,000 square foot building appears to be home to the supermarket and a food court. A while back, the space was home to National Wholesale Liquidators, then by 2012 the First Northeast International Market, which closed and was reopened by 2017 as the First Oriental Supermarket. And by late 2018, it had become the No. 1 Asian Supermarket. Out of curiosity, anybody know what this space was before National Wholesale Liquidators? (I remember going to their Linden, NJ location -- previously a Pathmark and later a Foodtown -- when I was little and loving their toy department.) These days, the No. 1 Asian Supermarket looks a little plain but large and nice inside. If you're interested in Asian supermarkets, don't worry -- we'll be touring a few very interesting ones here in Philadelphia and right outside the city, too, including one in just a few days. But on Monday, we're headed just over a half mile south back to Frankford Ave for a store over on The Market Report. Have a great weekend!


  1. Is there still that Asian market in Philadelphia that looks like a 1980s Acme inside?

    1. You'll be very happy if you come back here on September 9th...
