I grew up in Broomall, and my parents still live there. I'm going to be visiting them soon and would like to cook for them a little while I'm there.
For the most part, my Mom just shops at big chain supermarkets, and always has. Out here (Berkeley, CA) there are lots of wonderful local markets to shop at, but I have no idea of what's around my parents' house.
A few things I have in mind are good produce (organic preferred, but I'm flexible), bulk foods, bakeries, cheese shops, fish markets, and Asian (esp. Thai) ingredients. But really if anyone has any recommendations for interesting markets in the general vicinity of Broomall, the Main Line, western suburbs, or even West Philly, I'm curious.
I'll be able to borrow a car from my parents when I'm there, so I can drive a little bit.
