Bay Area ethnic market favorites

Having cleaned out my kitchen, I'm ready to restock it full of sauces and spices. This seems like a great opportunity to bring lots of different tastes to our table. So what are your favorite ethnic specialty markets to shop at (not Ranch 99) - I'm talking Mexican, Japanese, Chinese, Vietnamese, Indian, Middle Eastern, African, etc, etc. I think it would be great to compile a really thorough list of specialty markets as this subject tends to come up quite frequently in one form or another. I, of course, will be happy to do the shopping :) SF is closest to me, but naturally, I'm willing to travel...
