Searching for nice grocers btwn Cleveland and Fort Wayne?

tsfirefly Jul 1, 2011 02:30 PM

Our foodie family will be traveling to Fort Wayne this summer and will be spending a couple weeks in an extended-stay hotel. I'm a chef hoping to find some interesting grocery stores in the immediate area, or at the very least along the route between Cleveland (flying into Cleveland!) and Fort Wayne.

Any thoughts or suggestions of where to go/where to avoid? Ethnic grocers would be great, or at least a nice full-service grocer...

    In Cleveland, the West Side Market is a worthwhile stop. But you'll have to backtrack a bit because it's right near downtown, and the airport is 10 miles west of there. www.westsidemarket.org

    West Side Market
    1979 W 25th St, Cleveland, OH

      Cleveland has a thriving Asiatown (www.clevelandasiatown.com) where you will find a number of well stocked Asian groceries.

        In Fort Wayne are several good Mexican groceries and even a supermarket with a pinata aisle.
        But most rare are a few Burmese groceries and at least two restaurants.
