While in the city to pick up my feijoada this afternoon, I am going to run a few other chowish errands in preparation for a grand meal I am preparing on Saturday. A little wine and cheese at Sam's (I plan to hit the 2001 German wines hard for value and quality), and other stuff.
Can anyone recommend other good food stores in the area? I am particularly in search of good produce - nothing teribly exotic, but I need fava beans, baby artichokes, asparagus, good mushrooms, and lots of herbs for various dishes celebrating spring.
N'ville tends to depend on Jewel for produce. Having said that, I am also very open to any west suburban food store rec's.
thanks in advance,
