New Apna Bazaar in Kingsport, TN, is the Tri-Cities area only Indian market.  Fortunately, you can find almost anything you are looking for here.   From fresh exotic vegetables to Indian cooking utensils to grains and spices, you’ll find items you’ll be hard pressed to find at your local market.

The owner, Chirag Patel, speaks excellent English and can help you find whatever you’re looking for and will look for unusual foodstuffs in his weekly trek to Atlanta for exotic produce.  He is an excellent resource for cooking information and actually taught me how to cook Dohkla, a spicy chickpea cake, and several Indian vegetable dishes.

His father, Dinesh Patel, does not speak English that well nor does Chirag’s wife so if you are not sure of what you are looking for you may want to call and see who is available that day. With a brand new baby girl, his wife is not around much lately but Chirag is usually there.  The best day to buy the freshest fruits and vegetables is on Thursday as Chirag makes his trip to Atlanta on Wednesdays.  The New Apna Bazaar is a real find.
