H marts are a nationwide chain and its pretty easy to find English speaking employees at one.

Kam Man market not so much (Andy have you ever been to it? In quincy… with an attached mall/junk store. Fabulous).

The Asian market by me, the woman has broken English, but enough to understand. When I go to the counter to pay, after looking at all my stuff , she says " oh, you're vegetarian?", then she tells me alternate methods to cook up the things that I am purchasing. Its actually kinda cool to get first hand advice on the products. I understand just enough of what she says to make it work

Never been, Jen. There was one a while ago called M Mart??? in the Medford area. The H Mart is about 20-25 minutes away in Burlington.

Communicating is usually not a problem.
Since we have large Korean, Chinese, Thai, Japanese, and other Asian communities out here we have supermarkets that mostly cater to each, the biggest being Korean.
