"FRESHWAY FOODMART," 3275 Hwy #7, Markham - Huge, Clean, Modern Spanking-new, Chinese Supermarket with eye-opening selections!

Charles Yu | Nov 13, 202012:57 PM    

Anticipating another round of possible ' lock-down ', I doubled down on wearing a 4 layer medical mask, gloves, eye glasses before venturing out to do some comprehensive grocery shopping this lunch time.

One of my chosen destination was the newly opened Chinese Super Market ' FRESHWAY Food Mart, 3275 Hwy#7, Markham '.

Upon entering the huge, sparkling clean, ultra bright and modern complex, the first thought that came into my mind was ' WINCO ' ( Chinese supermarket, famous for their high mark-up, just down the road next to Home Depot )..... you are in BIG, DEEP trouble and for sure will have a big fight in your hand!

Selection and choices offered by this new place were amazing! Stand outs included the large selection of exotic tropical fruits and the eye-opening seafood section. The former, somehow they managed to offer at least 6-7 varietals of mangoes at this time of the year?! The latter, live ' Sea Urchins in the shell ', live ' Diver Scallops in the shell ', ' live ' Flower Whelks in the shell ' and live ' Alaskan RED Spider Crab'!.....to name a few.

Among some of the goodies I bought included a fresh, line-caught Floridian Rock Garoupa for steaming whole, couple of exotic mangoes from Peru and Columbia??, A Brazilian smooth skin Sugar-Apple and a 'Crystal-Sugar' Pear from Japan.

All in all, a most enjoyable and rewarding grocery shopping experience!
