We are moving soon from San Diego to Boston and just went to Boston to find housing and schools and know now that we will live in Watertown.
We love to cook and obviously we will go through old posts here and on Chowhound (and other sources) to start creating long lists of different places to get all the ingredients but we hope that you could help us to start such lists. We are looking for places all over the Boston area, large and small as long as they are unique or good at some ingredients.
Supermarkets (what are the best supermarket chains in this area):
Butcher (preferably organic and grass fed but if not available at least high quality and not CAFO meat. We don’t eat much meat and so are happy to pay more for good quality)
Produce (we might miss California produce most, so where are the best places for it in Boston):
Middle East Supermarkets:
Beer, Wine, Liquor:
Bread (we are looking for places with European style bread, e.g. sourdough, whole wheat, rye etc)
Spices (any shops specialized in spices ?):
Thanks a lot for the help
