    I was going to post in the Exploring Land of Plenty thread but thought Park to Shop deserved its own thread

    If my Saturday visit to Park to Shop/Hong Kong Market is any indication definitely time for a revisit. Multiple brands/types of Szechuan peppercorns, including green Szechuan peppercorns. Multiple douban pastes made with broad bean (fava) and the array of dry goods, rice, sauces etc was dizzying including loose bulk rice and peanuts.

    Produce, butcher counter, fresh fish including live lobster tank for $10.99 and "Vancouver" crab for $6.88, even a Chinese BBQ kiosk offering duck, char siu etc.

    Couple of cautions, the store is huge, easily the size of a Jewel, and if you go on a Saturday morning best put your Big Boy Pants on as Chinese Grandmothers don't play. :)~

    HKM may have changed hands as it is now called Park to Shop Supermarket. I plan on going midweek morning to really explore when, presumably, less hectic.

    Been there a few years ago, tons of stuff, I didn't even have a clue what it was for.
    Usually I am at Chinatown Market on Archer or Chicago Oriental Market on Canal.
    'Bible' Tripe and Duck Tongues are great finds as well as real Chinese wine, I have grown fond of the one in the crock over the years for cooking. Never use Cooking Wine!

    A Park To Shop is opening in Aurora on Route 59 by the Best Buy. I saw a sign for it today, but no opening day has been announced yet.

    Yup, I saw that when I searched for an opening date. Depending on how long each tenant's lease is, it might take five or more years before it's complete.

    Appears a Park to Shop has replaced the sagging Asian grocery at 4579 N Broadway. I have not been but if its half as good as the one on Wallace it will be a gem.

    Was tempted to buy all four just to see the expression on the brides face. :)

    They also are taking over/took over the former Win Sing/Richwell supermarket at 1835 S Canal St across the river from Chinatown proper.

    Park to Shop has also taken over the former China Town market on Archer.
    Not much has changed.
    Yesterday Scallops in the shell and large Surf Clams.
    But they have expanded the market on Canal and no longer sell alcohol there.
    Yesterday found the space formerly occupied by China Place Liquor vacant.
    Once again, I am without a source for Chinese Wine!

    Hi,

    I was there yesterday to pick up BBQ buns at Victoria Bakery, whose remains there despite all the changes at the store.

    What I like about this bakery is easy access and parking.
