We put together events that give all of us opportunities to explore Asian culture. Events in the pipeline include creative cooking workshops for Chinese cuisine and Asian fusion (including the use of exotic ingredients!), Asian holiday celebrations and other cultural activities, and tastings. Most of all, we want everyone to have fun learning more about Asian cultures and get a chance to make some new friends!

I work at Grand Asia Market and have met so many who want to learn and try everything, so I thought what better way than to have us meet here, where we have the resources and the setting for all kinds of get-togethers! I thought it would be a great way for Grand Asia Market to reach out to the community and give you what we know.

We are awaiting your membership to start our first Meetup hosted at our new Grand Asia Market location in Matthews! We had a lot of success in Cary, and want to bring that here.  We want to give everyone a chance to sign up and get your ideas before we plan and schedule our first Meetup.  Can’t wait to meet you and hope that you will enjoy our events!
