Why I love our Asian grocery stores

I was pointing out the crazy price differences between our grocery chain in town (Hyvee) and similar items found at the local Asian grocery stores. Rice stick noodles were $8 at Hyvee. $1.49 at any of the Asian stores in town for a bigger package.

I stopped in at one of the Asian groceries to grab a few things on the way home. I got a big bag of gorgeous baby bok choy for $1.69. Nice and green, small heads. I had to grab a few things at Hyvee since they are the only place in the city to get them. I noticed they wanted $4.99 for one head of bok choy about the size of a soda can. It was yellowed and starting to rot.

Baby corn is over $3.00 at Hyvee, $1.49 at any of the Asian stores in town.
