H Mart is the largest Asian American grocery store chain in the United States and we have one here in Cedar Park (well technically NW Austin). It’s located in the Parkline shopping center, where Home Depot and Kohl’s are located, at the corner of Lakeline Blvd and 183.
The Korean H Mart store is loved by many, with stores in California, Illinois, New York, New Jersey, Maryland, Michigan, Massachusetts, Georgia, Pennsylvania and Texas.
H Mart, is short for “Han Ah Reum,” which means “One Arm Full of Groceries.” But I’m sure I won’t be able to leave with just an arm full.
The company says, “We’re an Asian-inspired supermarket started in 1982 in Queens, New York. Despite our small beginnings, we have grown because of our continuous commitment to the freshest ingredients in all our offerings-while never forgetting that value is just as important. We hope our culture brings you new inspiration and we look forward to seeing you soon.”
While half of the store can fulfill your grocery needs, the other half allows you to enjoy various food vendors. The Market Eatery side features vendors like Chef Deuki Hong’s Sunday Bird and Sunday BBQ, as well as Momo Sushi, Korean bakery Tous Les Jours, Donkey Mo’s and more!
During non-pandemic times you’d be able to enjoy live music. Lets hope that returns soon so we can enjoy a drink or two with friends!
