H Mart, a pan-Asian market with locations throughout North America and London has just opened it's first center in the city of Chicago, offering fresh groceries and delicious made-to-order food while serving as a cultural hub for the city's large Asian-American population.
The location features a place to purchase groceries while also housing a variety of restaurant stalls that serve up authentic Asian cuisine, like sushi, ramen, dumplings. To promote H Mart's urban opening, the location invited the city's inhabitants to an energetic celebration, which featured traditional Korean dances, a tea ceremony and a ribbon cutting.
In addition to H Mart's Chicago opening, the marketplace is set to open another location in Austin, Texas later this month.
