Seeking Gourmet Stores in Austin region

Hi, I'm coming to Austin to visit Gourmet Grocery Stores that have a good selection of oils, cheeses and specialty/gourmet items. Smaller independents of most interest, will view larger ones too. Thanks, keep shining...Tom

        Nice, I've always liked the Hyde Park neighborhood, I'll stop by. Tom

          I second this. This is a foodie destination for sure. It's like 31 Flavors in that they give you a tastie-spoon for everything in the shop.

        2. There's Savory Spice Shop on W. 6th Street near Blanco.

          1. while not necessarily a gourmet store, phoenicia has a lot of stuff, mostly middle eastern. They have 2 locations, but their south store has more stuff.

              2. There's always the monster sized Central Market and flagship Whole Foods.
