Durham Ingredient/Tool shopping help, please?

abowes | Apr 20, 2007 08:11 AM

I'm shopping for a Mexican dinner to be held on Sunday, and could use some pointers as to where best to look for a few things. I will need to pick these up either late this afternoon (after 6:00), first thing Saturday morning (before 10:00), late Saturday afternoon (after 5:00), or anytime Sunday before 6:00. I'd strongly prefer to stick to Durham. If some of these should be available at any old Food Lion, or such, please pardon my ignorance and tell me so.

fresh epazote leaves
dried pasilla chiles
ancho chiles

a whole, cleaned and scaled fish - snapper, grouper, striped bass or such

And, where does one look for bar supplies like a muddler, extra-fine (super-fine?) sugar, bitters, vermouth? (Can you get vermouth in a small bottle?)
