Louisville’s grocery scene is growing. Publix and Hy-Vee are slated to open in Derby City soon, adding to our 40+ Kroger stores + Costco, Meijer, and other retailers.

We’re all for more options, but we also love our mom-and-pop international stores. Here are a few of our faves.

Choi’s Asian Food Market, 607 Lyndon Ln.

Offering everything from Sanrio character cookies to fresh crab, this market is full of items that aren’t commonly found in other stores.

Golden Key Market, 3821 Bardstown Rd.

This European market and deli is the place to go if you’re looking to pick up paddlefish caviar, kielbasa, or the traditional Russian drink kvass — which is like rye beer.

Supermercado Guanajuato, multiple locations

Specializing in Mexican products, Supermercado Guanajuato is a market, butchershop, restaurant and bakery in one. Find fresh tortillas, a large selection of meats + baked goods to satisfy any sweet tooth.
