T&E Asian Groceries is spacious and friendly shop offering a wide and exotic range of Asian grocery items and products. The business was started by Emma Francisco in 2000 and originally operated from a garage in Banks. Over three years Emma built up her business, sourcing products from all over Asia as well as specialty items from the USA and New Zealand. She worked hard and built up a great reputation for quality and service and opened her shop “T&E Asian Groceries” at the Fyshwick Fresh Food Markets in 2003.

For the first few years she operated from a small shop on the eastern side of the markets and now with the market wide renovation almost complete operates from a new and spacious store. This has allowed her to increase her range massively and provide even more exotic choices for her customers.
