Greetings, Friends of The Mala Market!
By now you've probably heard how completely and utterly messed up the global supply chain is, but we at The Mala Market are thanking our lucky stars—and our ace Chengdu export team—that our shipments continue to arrive and that we miraculously have very few products out of stock. (Of course, we've paid six times the pre-Covid price to get them here, but that's a whole other story...)
Right now we are celebrating the return of our custom-made stainless-steel and brass hot pots just in time for real hot pot weather. We also got a new shipment of Baoning vinegar that—hallelujah!—no longer leaks, a new shipment of Yaomazi Sichuan pepper oil that is stunningly fragrant, and a trove of organic sesame paste that is fresh, creamy and easily stirrable.
By next month, another large container should arrive with new products we'll add to the store in time for your holiday cooking and gifting. So if excellent homemade Chinese food is in your plans, you know where to go!
See you at the Market!

P.S. Our apologies that the Sichuan pickle jars we introduced last month sold out so quickly. That was a delightful surprise, so we'll replenish as soon as possible and hope to get them here by the new year.
