I remember when my grandmother bought a Korean grocery store in Singapore and it was the first thing that came to mind.
“You’re a giant spinner in my backyard, I love that,” I thought, thinking back to the first time I had a grocery store experience in the country.
She’d been born in South Korea and raised in the US, but grew up in Melbourne, New South Wales and Sydney, and now works in the food industry in New York City.
“We’re the only family that owns a Korean market in Sydney, so when I moved to Sydney, my grandparents were like, ‘You should start a Korean food market here,'” she said.
So when I visited the Kwonjung market in the CBD in 2016, I couldn’t resist.
In 2016, Kwonjeong Market opened its doors to a wide audience, including Kwonji, an American-owned Korean supermarket, and the family that owned it.
Kwonjeung opened in October last year, with plans to expand into Sydney in 2019.
I can see how this was an instant hit with customers.
For a while it looked like Kwonjo was on track to become a big name, but now it looks like it will finally be making a mark in Sydney.

The market was a collaboration between Kwonja and Kwonjjung.
It was a collaborative venture between the two Korean companies.
As well as Korean and American food, Kwanja is known for producing Korean-style dishes and serving the best Korean-inspired, local produce and fresh produce.
Its main focus is on fresh, organic produce, and also offers vegan and vegetarian offerings.
We were very lucky to be able to open the market in our home city in Sydney,” Ms Hwang said.”
The Kwonjeeks were really passionate about it.
They put a lot of work into it, and I think the market is very well-established now.
“It was an incredible feeling for the whole family.
Her parents worked as the sales manager at the time, but Ms Hwa is now running the business herself, working from home and working from the kitchen.
There’s been so much interest in the market that Kwonjin has had to start selling its products online to get more attention, Ms Hwas said.
I can only imagine how the market will be able continue to expand in the future.
One of the things that we have to make sure of is that we are giving the customers the choice to buy and sell what they want.
I think it’s a good thing that people have been so interested in the Korean market, because they want to know what they are getting, and what they can afford.
Kwanjeong is also looking to expand its presence in other markets, like Hong Kong and Singapore, and is already planning to start serving food in New Zealand, which Ms Hws said will be a huge success.
And we’re working with Kwanjeon, so we can grow that business and hopefully start expanding in the Philippines and in other countries.
It is an exciting opportunity to start a market in a foreign market, and it’s just a great opportunity for all of us to grow together.”
