"FRESHWAY FOODMART, First Markham Place" - For exotic fruits and hard-to-find seafood and meat, this place is tough to beat!

Charles Yu | Apr 25, 202103:11 PM     4

Wearing two masks and armed with a single shot of Pfizer vaccine, I went on a crazy, bank-breaking, grocery shopping spree this lunch time at 'Freshway, Markham'.
Picked and bought some interesting finds from an array of impressive, eye-opening 'exotic fruit ' display.
Following is a sample list of 'less common' products.......... just tip of the iceberg:
Taiwanese Red Oranges, Original Fuji Apple from Japan ($4 each ), Columbia Sugar Mango ( $6.99 pp ), Purple Musk Melon from Japan ( $28.99 pp or each? ), Flora Mango from Peru ($9.99 pp ), Elephant Tusk Mangoes from Thailand and Vietnam ($11.99 pp ), Exotic Asian Pears from Japan, Korea and China........etc.
Also came across/bought Australian 9+ Wagyu Striploin, live Alaskan Red & Crystal Crabs and Shell-on, Giant Diver Scallops with Roe in the seafood and butcher sections.
