The Asian market at 416 High St. in Logansport is under new ownership.

Proquila Kamei is the official owner of what is now Rongmei Asian Market, with help from her husband, Daisok Panmei, the pastor of Miami Baptist Church.

The new name of the market, Rongmei, is the name of their tribe in Northeast India, he said.

The couple bought the market from Mang and Daisy Hau and have owned it for about a week.

The Haus, who bought the market in July 2019, had named it Daisy Hau Asian Market and moved it from 3830 E. Market St. to downtown to be closer to customers and to save on rent.

Kamei said they were looking for a buyer, and if they couldn’t find one, they would’ve closed.

The store will continue to carry food for a diverse clientele such as Filipino, Thailand, Laotian, Vietnamese, Burmese and Indian but also for South American customers like Guatemalan immigrants.

Kamei and Panmei take special orders for customers and offer healthy foods that are hard to find elsewhere.

They close on Thursday to get the fresh produce that isn’t the kind carried in most markets in Cass County.

“Friday is a very busy day because they love their fresh vegetables,” he said.

The store also offers pre-made, handmade meals.
