Sunrise Mart Japanese Supermarket

This is the exterior shot of Sunrise Mart, a Japanese supermarket in the East Village. East Village used to be a rough neighborhood but over the last decade, it has become a very hip and trendy outpost of all things Japanese.

So where do you usually get your groceries?

Nice shot, these banners are wonderful.
I got my groceries most in supermarkets, some in shops around home.

Hi Ming! Another hectic week after the Easter break...
East Village seems to be in greta shape... Online supermarket or gourmet shop, that's the option!
Loved the Cherry Hill picture!!
Amazing Easter Parade couple!!

Meanwhile Blogtrotter has finished posting on Brasilia 2008. Enjoy and have a great weekend!

great shot.

I go to Tesco or Asda for my shopping or Marks & Spencers.
Asda is a wallmart store.

There's another Japanese grocery store on the East Side, 59th near the bridge. Can't remember the name now. I like shopping at Food Emporium and Fairway!

I like this POV

Food .. I alternate ordering from Fresh Direct with going to Whole Foods .. and in between Husband picks things up at West Side Market .. oh and on Saturday/Sunday I make a Zabar run and get all sort of yummy things .. including a loaf of freshly sliced San Francisco Sour Dough bread

These banners are really appealing to me...
I mostly buy groceries on line, with the rest of my weekly shopping at Esselunga, a big italian chain of supermarkets. Somedimes I indulge at the colourful stalls in Piazza Erbe...

I like the banners. Still evocative of traditional paintings, but obviously done in a simpler and more illustrative style.

Big chain supermarket every other month, small neighborhood grocery as needed. Happy weekend, Ming!

Oh Ming, I'm sooooo hip and trendy I shop at the Piggly Wiggly and Western supermarkets most of the time. I do like Publix and shop there some. Love these neat banners. A very nice change from neon!!!!

Where I live, within one minute's walk, I can shop at the covered market place, at the small supermarket... and I can also find my bakery, butcher, fruit & vegetables shop, not mentioning the Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Indian ones... buy my newspaper or book, my cigarettes... and have a coffee or a drink a the terrace of one of the bars! No need for ordering on the net, nor to use a car!

Is it a good place to shop? I'm looking for bento boxes, without having to go to Mitsuwa.

Oh and, I get my groceries from Fairway, Citarella or Zabar's (in that order).
