Super-H Mart to host three-day festival

If you won’t be able to make it to the Korean Festival in Suwanee today, Super-H Mart is hosting its own festival next weekend.

Oct. 25 through 27, the stores in Duluth, Suwanee, Johns Creek and Doraville are celebrating the company’s ninth anniversary with the Asian Food Festival.

“This festival is a way for us to introduce Asian and Korean foods publicly to the main streams and share those with the local communities,” said Patrick Kim, general director of Super-H Mart. “We’re also hoping the festival will make the local savvy shoppers aware of Super-H Mart where they can purchase mountains of fresh vegetables, fruits and fish at discount prices.”

There will be guest speakers, food and beverage samples, demonstrations, Korean cooking contests and a pumpkin painting contest.

To kick off the three-day celebration, the public is invited to attend the Duluth’s location for its grand opening. The day begins at 11 a.m. at 2550 Pleasant Hill Road in Duluth.

“We wish that the festival would energize Korean community and Gwinnett County during a tumult of recession,” Kim said. “We will continue to reach out to the locals, mounting more beneficial food performances.”

During the kimbap fest, contestants create unique kimbap with the basic ingredients provided. A panel of judges will evaluate the entries. First-place receives a $100 Super-H Mart gift card.
