This isn’t meant to be comprehensive or list every shop in the area ... only the best.

This is not my neck of the woods. I hope others will contribute.

If there isn’t a website, I listed a Chowhound report with the address. A newspaper article is the link if there were no Chowhound reports. Searching Chowhound will result in good tips for many of these shops.

I’ll update periodically with the suggestions in this topic noting additions with an edit comment at the end of this post.

I keep this list for my own info, so I don’t have to keep googling for websites. I would ask people NOT link to this in the future when questions about the best market, bakery, etc. are asked on the board.

Things change and it might discourage some great new hint. After a few days when a topic has run its course, then it's ok to link to this post as supplemental info, if anyone wants to.

Yeah, a gazillion Japanese, Korean, Indian, Eastern-Euro shops to be added. Given the South Bay, perhaps the Dragers and Whole Foods should be listed under ethnic and everything else just under markets ... or just skip the ethnic category totally.
