I'm near the L and JMZ trains in Ridgewood. I usually get my kimchi, dumplings etc in Manhattan, at the convenience store on 3rd Ave and 11th street (can remember the name). I'd be glad to shop the outer boroughs but Flushing seems out of the question... that's 3 trains for me... too remote.
Is there a good (and maybe large) Asian market that I can access, with my limited transportation options? I'm near Metropolitan Ave so a bus ride would be okay. But I can't spend an hour on public transportation each way, just to get my kimchi.
If there is a great market in Chinatown that has kimchi in bulk sizes, I'd be glad to get those recommendations, too.
