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!

        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/?gclid=CIjonLnN4I4CFSBMGgod- 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.

          Fresh artichokes from the Monterey Bay area:

          we send these to relatives every fall for Thanksgiving treats.

          They arrive squeaky-fresh.

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