Event Registration: Exploring the History of Asian Markets in the U.S.

Event Registration - Exploring the History of Asian Markets in the U.S.

Monday, October 26 | 5:00 pm The history of Asian markets globally follows the history of Asian emigration. Chinese began emigrating in large numbers to settle in other Asian countries beginning in the 14th century during the Ming Dynasty. Chain migration and discrimination led to the formation of ethnic communities overseas where shops mainly served local residents. Outside visitors to marketplaces in such communities as Chinatown, Little Tokyo, Koreatown and Little Saigon popularized many Asian products. Continuing immigration and growing demand for these products has spurred the global proliferation of such Asian supermarkets as 99 Ranch Market (Chinese), Mitsuwa (Japanese), and H-Mart (Korean).
