What's in the Nashville larder?

Having recently (and happily) relocated to Nashville, I'm interested in hearing about what the city/environs has to offer to the food do-it-yourselfer. Sure, there's lots of advice out there about restaurants, but what are your favorite places to go to stock your shelves? I am especially interested in hole-in-the-wall, off-the-beaten-track places and those with unusual ingredients. Sure, I love the Wild Oats as much as the next Hound, but what else have you got?....

  1. Welcome to Nashville! I love it here too. My favorite place to shop for goods is K$S on Charlotte, there is one on Nolensville also. Go out Charlotte past White Bridge and it is on the left. Great options and prices. You do have to plan to use the produce almost immediately. Also the Farmer's Market on 8th is re-vamping to better feature local famers and should be a great venue soon.

    1. I also forgot about Plumgood Food. They are an online grocery delivery. I haven't tried them but some of my friends love it.

      1. Corrieri Formaggia (I'm sure I butchered the spelling) in the 12 South area is new and probably best around for cheeses, cured Italian meats, olives, and assorted Italian pantry staples.

        1. I've been here for 20+ years. Anthing in particular you're looking for?

          1. The Produce Place on Murphy Road -- check it out for homegrown produce, exceptional selection of fruit (current crop of S.C. peaches are superb) and lots of organic items. Also serves as an outpost for Provence breads, rolls, buns, etc.

            Only a few minutes down Murphy Road, veer onto 46th (at the legendary Sylvan Park Restaurant), left on Charlotte and right on 51st Ave. N. (as I recall) and look for the cinderblock building that looks like an Italian flag. That is the Italian Market -- everything Italian that a Nashvillian could dream of.
