Part supermarket and part community center for the ever-increasing Japanese population in the famously diverse East Village, Sunrise Market is a veritable one-stop shop hidden away on the second floor of a Third Avenue locale. The interior is brightly and cheerfully lit, and the wide aisles are filled to bursting with hard-to-find Asian goods, everything from housewares like quality rice cookers and hand-crafted, ceramic tableware to tofu, nashi (Japanese pear), and ocotopus tentacles. You might find it challenging to navigate through the packaged goods (most are labeled in Japanese), but don't fret: the grocers are friendly and stand ready to translate.
Sunrise Mart also has a kitchen which offers inexpensive but delicious soba noodles, bento boxes, and miso soup.
