It’s easy enough to find guides on which restaurants, bars, and food trucks to sample when visiting a city, but guides on where to shop for food are considerably harder to come by. Sometimes you just want to cook a meal, or pack a nice picnic, or have a snack that didn’t come out of a hotel minibar. The following guides are meant to help with all of those needs.
These guides are also useful if your intention for traveling (as it often is for us) is to savor the unique culinary landscape of a place–much of a city’s character can be discovered though its farmers’ markets, shops, and food producers. Plus, you never know what tasty local specialty you may stumble upon. Go forth and forage!
