Hi Everyone, I was wondering if anyone knew of any great specialty grocers in the East Bay area (I live in Concord). I'm aware of Andronico's, Whole Food's, Lunardi's etc. I'm interested if anyone knows about any great Cheese Stores, Italian Markets (looking for some nice, excellently sliced Prosciutto di Parma), Asian Food Marts, Old School Butchers with incredible meat selections, etc.
Basically, anything resembling small, family owned businesses that take pride in their selections and offer different selections/service than you would ever find at your local Safeway/Albertsons.
I would prefer places on the Walnut Creek side of the Caldecott if there are any!
