Glasgow: food shopping...where?

kerosundae | | May 17, 2011 02:53 PM

Hi all,

I'm just began my 3-month stay in Glasgow yesterday. I live by Queen's Park, where there are butcher, fishmonger, a Co-op and Stalks & Stems 10 steps away on Pollokshaws Rd, but I still need a few other necessities sorted out, mainly ethnic food shopping:

- Chinese and southeast asian things, I especially don't like being without galangal, sweet potato noodles, and seaweed, and probably a lot of other asian things.
- is there a way to get teff flour here?
- speaking of flour, where can I get rolled oats, spelt, and other raw cereals? I'm thinking a big health food store would probably have those things.

- I like to eat as locally whenever practicable, what are some produce locally grown and will be in season while I'm here? origin of the produce are usually marked only with a country, if at all, I'd like some tips on how to eat local foods.

I really don't know where anything is in this town, so if you have any other helpful information, it would be much welcomed and appreciated! Other food requests will surely come up, so I'll add those then.
