Your favorite gourmet food stores?

I travel quite a lot across the US and I am always on the lookout for a great store or supermarket selling gourmet foods. What are your favorite local food stores?

  1. Formaggio Kitchen in Cambridge, MA (Huron Village) and the South End of Boston. Others in the Boston area that get good comments on the Boston board are Salumeria Italiana in the North End and Savenor's in Beacon Hill and in Cambridge.

    1. The West Point Market is my favorite local gourmet store. They have an amazing cheese and wine section and their selection of meat is quite good.

      Gallucci's in Cleveland is very good, but I don't think it would be considered gourmet, as it is more ethnic Italian.

        fav source for pizza making supplies & outstanding fresh cheeses at fair prices
        Italian meats for antipasto, lunch platters
        ravioli, only company to match my dh's great grandma in taste and variety

        1. In Minneapolis it would be Byerly's. The Ridgedale location is the best by far.
          In Chicago it would be Fox & Obel. They are located near Navy Pier.

          1. New Seasons Market (a local chain) in Portland, OR, is lovely. Heck, if I'd grown up in New England, it would blow me away (ugh, the land of Stop and Shop). It's not "gourmet", per se, but it has a lot of gourmet food items in it. Wonderful seasonal produce, Oregon wines, fine cheese, local sustainable meats, lots of good chocolate.
