Needful Things. Named after Stephen King’s 1991 novel, the only thing scary about this store are the low prices. The store is new to the Sprague International District – it’s in the same space previously occupied by the progressive eatery One World Café – but is sure to be a popular spot. Look for unique furniture and stylish prints to decorate your home.


INTERNATIONAL DISTRICT ON SPRAGUE

LAUNCHED IN 2009 as part of Impact Capital’s Vibrant Communities Initiative, which provides challenged neighborhoods with the planning and resources to transform into vibrant communities, the International District is a neighborhood of surprises. From delicious ethnic cuisine and charming cafes, to antique shops and Asian


markets, the International District has a way making the snowy streets of Spokane seem far away. Gather your family and friends, and spend an afternoon, or two, exploring the hidden gems that make this neighborhood one of a kind.


DISCOVER EAT


Best Asian Market. The first time you walk into the Best Asian Market, you’ll probably be overwhelmed. Neon colored candies are stacked beside more kinds of dried seaweed than you ever knew existed. There is a whole aisle devoted to instant ramen and another to condiments of every shape, size and color. And that’s just the front half of the store! In the back, there are rows of fresh herbs, exotic fruits and specialty ingredients. For anyone who loves Asian cuisine and wants to reproduce those spicy, salty, tangy flavors at home, Best Asian Market lives up to its name.
