I just moved to Crofton - I like my Shopper's Warehouse with the 5 kinds of eggplant and three kinds of crema agria and the Trader Joe's in Annapolis. But, Shopper's Warehouse does not have everything. I have not been able to find the ethnic grocery stores - I know that they are here but they don't pop on web searches or from the phone book and my neighbors are not as fanatical about semolina, cardamom, horchata, and pocky as my family is.
Just to get ya'll all lathered up and ready to defend this place, in Austin, where I am from, I could get all of the above at Central Market, www.centralmarket.com, or at the local HEB, www.heb.com. I am sure the ethnic groceries are here. Don't get me wrong, I love the fresh fish and crab place on 3, the weather's great, and the bookstores are lovely.
