Established in 1980 by husband and wife Patrick and Nancy Ng, Po Wing Hong Food Market began as a modest store located on Hester Street in the heart of New York City's Chinatown. Reflecting the owners' Hong Kong origins, the store predominantly offers Cantonese products. As people from the Guangdong region of China are known for making daily healing and restorative soups, our store maintains a wide range of quality herbs and soup ingredients.
Over the years, we have become known not only for our fair prices, but also for our 3 core values: quality, honesty, and product knowledge. Po Wing Hong not only guarantees customers receive authentic goods, but also the highest quality products as well. This holds especially true with our unique selection of Chinese delicacies and health products. With the experience we have built over the years, our customers trust that we will introduce them to the proper product for their needs. Our belief in building a long-lasting relationships with our customers has not only been a principle but a cornerstone of our success.
Our Brooklyn-based wholesale and distribution division, Po Wing Trading, is able to deliver goods to retailers and restaurants throughout the tri-state area with our fleet of trucks and vans. Reaching beyond the NY metro area, we have built up decades of experience trading both domestically and overseas with our partners in the Caribbean, South America, Africa, and Europe.
Thanks to our loyal customers, we are proud to be one of the longest established retailers in Chinatown. We believes in giving back to the community that has supported us for over 30 years. Po Wing Hong sponsors numerous charitable causes and organizations in Chinatown and throughout New York City.
A few of the organizations we have worked with include:
- Kiwanis Club of Chinatown
- Asian American Restaurant Association
