Harrisonburg - To Market, To Market

We’ve already got a restaurant thread, so I thought I’d start a thread to discuss the growing variety of markets in the area…a clearinghouse of information, if you will, for locals to source the best ingredients, and for tourists to find the best locally made products.
First up -
I recently explored the new Euro Market located in the Towncenter Shopping Center behind the mall. Although I was expecting a greater variety of European foodstuffs, it was fun poking around among the Russian, Bulgarian, and other Eastern European products. The list of things I wanted to try grew by the minute.
It’s the only place in town I know of where you can buy fresh caviar and kvass. They also have a big selection of fish (frozen) and cured meats, fresh vegetables, frozen foods, sweets and chocolates and fresh made breads and pastry. It isn’t a big store and I felt they were a bit heavy on the beverages and candy, but there was enough interesting “stuff” to keep me coming back.
The products, of course, are of foreign origin and the labels were indecipherable to me, but most had a nutrition label sticker in English which helped with identification. The staff was very pleasant as well.
