Best food shopping spots?

bgosh | Nov 11, 2010 10:13 AM

I just moved here from the Bay Area and am trying to find the favorite butchers, fishmongers and produce shops around. I'm living in Solana Beach but don't have a problem going out of my way to find something really good. I like Farmers markets, but they can be inconsistent and kind of pricey.
Here's what I miss so far:

Butcher shop with oddball cuts of beef - onglet / hanger, flat iron, skirt. Whole well raised poultry.
Sushi quality fish & good selection.
Produce markets with seasonal stuff and high turnover so it's really fresh.
Specialty shop with overpriced imported gourmet whatnot.

Any ideas?
