Pan-Asian market opens in Stony Brook University


Stony Brook University students have a new spot to grab authentic Asian food items.

Last month, a Pan-Asian mini-grocery store called Jasmine Market opened in the university’s Charles B. Wang Center.

The 550-square-foot market sells international grocery items, snacks, and beverages, as well as grab-and-go salads, soups, sauces, rice, quinoa, microwaveable meals, spices, and dressings.

Stony Brook, which has over 2,500 international undergrads, opened the market to help suit the wants of its students.

“By reviewing student needs, [Stony Brook’s Faculty Student Association (FSA)] and CulinArt has made it easier for people to purchase the items they love and want, to much fanfare from students, staff, and faculty,” said Van Sullivan, FSA executive director.
