Baltimore car-less grocery shopping for foreigner?

Omena | Aug 5, 2010 07:45 AM


I'll be moving from Germany to Baltimore this month and could need some tips for grocery shopping.

I consulted Google maps and various student boards, but I'm pretty clueless about what is good in which supermarket in the US in general (which ones carry good quality, which ones to go for staples), where to go for what in Baltimore...

Two things that may limit my shopping options: I won't have a car and I'll be on a student budget.

I'll be living in Charles Village for the first weeks and maybe after too, but basically I'm interested in anything I can reach via the Hopkins shuttles or public transportation.

I eat huge amounts of veggies and fruit and saw there are several farmer's markets, but other than that, where does one best buy fruits and veggies in Baltimore? (Maybe outside of town, but without a car?)

And especially apples – I eat lots and lots of them... Any tips for that? (I've found that in Germany ethnic groceries have great apples for some reason....)

What are your favorite ethnic shops in Baltimore? I love ethnic food, spices, exciting new things etc...
