New market in San Gabriel

There were some previous post about the market replacing the 99 Ranch on the corner of San Gabriel Blvd and Garvey. It is currently open for mainly produce and various other items. I asked an employee when the store was going to open and she said August 8, 2009. For anyone interested, they did have dragon fruit which I've only seen on the Anthony Bourdain show but it looked pretty good. Don't quite have the nerve to try one I want to watch the tivoed segment once again. He described it somewhat as tasting like a custard inside with lots of little black seeds. It was also featured on Mexico -One Plate at a Time with Rick Bayless doing a show in Merida. He also described it as delicious. Another thing I found and bought that I really liked was some Siracha Dried Peas. I have only had the Wasabi peas but these were different and tasty. Could be addictive. It seems they will be carrying Korean, Chinese and Viet Namese items. Can't wait.
