THE BULLETIN (July 16, 2019) — Downtown Norwich again has a grocery store, one that serves the area’s large Asian population.
S&A Market has opened its doors off Franklin Square. The market sells groceries, meat and vegetables from Asian countries, including China, Japan, Korea, Vietnam, Thailand and the Philippines.
It is owned by Mei He and her husband, Yang Liu, of Mansfield. Both are of Chinese descent. Yang is a UConn professor, and Mei worked at a commercial kitchen in Storrs where she made spicy Sichuan sausages and dumplings that were popular with Chinese students at UConn looking for food from their country.
S&A are the initials of the couple’s two daughters, ages 7 and 9.
