gourmet grocery store gems around the world

meld_la | May 24, 2009 10:38 AM

There is a reasonable amount of information about larger markets in cities around the world- but I'm interested in finding out about smaller gourmet independent/specialty grocers in a variety of cities around the world: New York, Southern California (I know- not a city), Tokyo, Berlin, Madrid or Barcelona, Paris, London and Florence (Tuscany)/Rome and beyond!

I'll post in the individual regions as well, but I'm interested in tourist perspectives as well.
I'd like to find places with amazing product, displays, service, innovation in technology or "eco-friendly" products and design and characters (owners/managers/staff).

I'm trying to assemble research on the world's grocery gems- stores and markets that make people go "wow!".

I've googled and found a couple of top ten lists, but they seem to focus on larger scale markets and stores.

Thank you!
