Scenes From the New H Mart in Central Square

The lines formed early for kimbap, ramen, and yes, even Spam.

H Mart

That 40-minute drive to Burlington is finally over. On April 23, H Mart opened its highly-anticipated Central Square location in the space formerly occupied by the Harvest Co-op. The Korean grocery chain’s  new 18,000 square-foot space offers a massive selection of kimchis, coconut milk, Japanese sodas and candy, seafood, banchan, and even Spam. The newest H Mart might not be as big as its popular Burlington location, but they’ve still found room to put in a food court that houses Sapporo Ramen and two new faces in Massachusetts: Go! Go! Curry! and Paris Baguette.

Here’s a look at the ramen, exotic goods, and frenzied crowds that dominated the scene at the opening of Cambridge’s newest attraction. –Panicha Imsomboon
