Nashville - best food markets?

Where are your favorite places to buy ingredients in and around Nashville?

As a relative newcomer, here's what I've found so far:

Freshest fish - Harris Teeter

Best everyday seasonal veggies - Farmer's Market

Best selection of Indian ingredients - International Market at Farmer's Market

Pleasantest little joint to shop - Produce Place

Coffee - I've just had my taste buds piqued by Drew's Brews, the house coffee at Sips (new place at Riverside & McGavock in Inglewood). I understand Drew was roaster for some years for Bongo Java. What I tasted had really interesting notes - berries, acids, not your run of the mill cup of joe.

Best whole grain bread - Great Harvest Bread Co. in Green Hills

I'd love to find a good source for Asian ingredients like mirin, rayu and rice wine vinegar and also a good source of Contintental ingredients. I just recently became a fan of champagne vinegar, banyuls vinegar, and salt-dried Tunisian capers - wow! - and would love to explore more of these kinds of ingredients.

Also, any leads on good fresh corn tortillas? In Chicago you can pick up a small pack for a quarter, often still hot from the tortilleria (sp.) and full of flavor. Here I see packs of 100 (?!) corn tortillas next to the smaller packs of flour tortillas.

Looking forward to hearing about everyone's faves-
