Just Moved to Redmond from Boston -- Food Shopping Help Please!

redbird | Apr 17, 2012 06:52 AM

Hi, My husband and I have just moved to Redmond from the Boston area for sixteen months due to his job. We've settled in a rented house with a fabulous kitchen so I'm anxious to start cooking with as many local ingredients as possible.

Would my fellow chowhounds fill in me on their favorite sources for great ingredients? Who are your preferred local meat producers, dairies, cheese makers, bread and pastry makers? What local stores and markets do you frequent most? Which farmers markets are considered the best? What about stand alone farm stands? Are there websites and blogs that focus on the Eastside food scene? Where do you go for the best prices on the everyday staples?

In my first week I've visited Metropolitan Market (Kirkland) and Whole Foods, TJ, QFC (three of them), Safeway and Albertsons (all in Redmond). Also found Uwajimaya in Bellevue.

Thank you in advance for any and all advice -- I'm looking forward to this culinary adventure!
