food trips

we've been out food shopping, replenishing our supplies for the coming week. husband and i mused to each other that we don't go to the chain supermarkets/groceries that much anymore since the huge Asian market opened nearby, and we prefer to drive further afield to alternative places like Trader Joe's and Whole Foods to find hard-to-find ingredients and exotic produce, and on to the bulk/wholesale clubs to find bargains.
so this weekend while bloghopping in the rare moments when the pc is available (kids are home...!) i was thrilled to see a fresh meat market in Athens and bump into Market Man who took me on a food trip back to Manila. he has glorious photographs of purveyors and produce, with recipes and reminiscences. made me awfully homesick though...
