Does anyone have suggestions for regional specialties that can be shipped anywhere in the US? For example, one of my east coast selections is philly cheesesteaks from campos deli in PA.

Thanks!

  1. For Seattle and Washington specialties, try these:

    Pike Place Fish Market
    http://www.pikeplacefish.com/
    the place where they throw the fish

    Port Chathan Smoked Seafood
    http://www.portchatham.com

    Chukar Cherries
    http://www.chukar.com/

    Lopez Island Farms
    http://lopezislandfarm.com/
    preserves and spreads, including my favorite, Northwest Slug Butter!

    Aplets & Cotlets

    Arbini Farms

    Walla Walla Sweet Onions

    Tom Douglas rubs and sauces

    1. Harry and David's in Oregon-great (expensive) produce.
      Smoked salmon-don't have a source to recommend.

      1. Fresh artichokes from the Monterey Bay area:

        we send these to relatives every fall for Thanksgiving treats.

        They arrive squeaky-fresh.

        1. I haven’t found any places that have prepared food peculiar to the West Coast, but here are three good sources for seafood:

          http://www.philsfishmarket.com/

          http://www.great-alaska-seafood.com/?... http://www.fishex.com/index.html

          Fisherman’s Express’s shrimp are small and tedious to peel, so I use that site for salmon and scallops. For shrimp and crab, I use Great Alaska Seafood.

          All my orders from these places have arrived in perfect condition*; no taste of being held in the hold too long before processing.

          Software is acting up, so if the links don’t work, search for:

          Phil’s Fish Market (Moss Landing, CA

          )

          Great Alaska Seafood

          Fisherman’s Express

          *I would particularly commend Phil’s; one alleged “overnight” shipper, choosing to ignore the large “perishable” label, delivered the food in a state of advanced odiferousness. It wasn’t Phil’s fault, but they replaced it free of charge.
