The Mala Market is America's source for heritage Sichuan ingredients and regional Chinese pantry staples
We import several rare varieties of Sichuan pepper and Chinese chilies and are the exclusive importers of Sichuan's most esteemed handcrafted products, including Pixian chili bean paste, Zhongba soy sauce and Baoning vinegar
Direct sourcing from renowned Chinese farms and factories—mostly China Time-Honored Brands, in business for centuries—ensures authenticity, safety and freshness
Ma (the numbing of Sichuan pepper) + la (the heat of chili pepper) = mala (the defining taste of Sichuan food)
Check out our Sichuan Recipe Blog for inspiration and instruction on using the ingredients
