Sure, you can do a simple search to find lists of Asian-owned businesses much like this one, but what if you're looking for something in particular? Or maybe you want a more extensive directory. Either way, check out these other options for finding Asian-owned businesses online.

Intentionalist

This site is useful for finding vendors of all kinds, so it's no surprise they have a tag for Asian-owned businesses, as well. You can choose relevant communities but also narrow your search further by selecting neighborhoods in specific states, to ensure that you can find retailers to shop both locally and if you're out of town.

Simply go to the 'Asian-owned brands' page on Target's website, and you'll be rewarded with hundreds of eligible products.

Mercatus

Mercatus is another site that features multiple categories of minority-owned businesses to help you find retailers you want to support. The site's Asian American and Pacific Islander business directory can be further narrowed by sector, as well as if the vendor is open for different types of patronage — think options like open for biz, delivery, shop online, special events, and takeout.

Shop App

If you prefer to shop on your phone, consider trying the Shop app by Shopify. It makes finding different kinds of businesses easy, especially under the "Voices" section, which highlights Asian-owned businesses as well as others.

Target

Target is one of the major retailers that's made an effort to highlight minority-owned businesses, including Asian-owned ones. Simply go to the "Asian-owned brands" page on the bull's-eye's site, and you'll be rewarded with lots more pages of eligible products. Target's product listings also have an "AAPI Owned Brand" badge to look for to make shopping even easier. At the time of this writing, there were about 22 pages of eligible products, totaling around 500 items.

Check Out the 'About' Section

Interested in a particular business's provenance? Head to the "About" section on their website to see if you can learn more. You may find it at the top of the homepage, but it may also be in smaller print at the bottom. This section won't always make the origin clear, but sometimes it can give you all the information you need to make your shopping decision.

Stalk Social Media Pages

If a brand is active on social media, there's a good chance they'll have the relevant info in their bio. Whether you prefer Twitter, Instagram, or Facebook, it's worth reading up on the brands there to see if they highlight the fact that they're Asian-owned.

Look for Badges

Some retailers put easy-to-spot badges on product pages to denote Asian-owned businesses, much like what Target does. Watch for vendors to also have badges on their homepages calling attention to their being Asian-owned.
