  1. Have you discovered the Grand Central Market in downtown L.A. yet?

    1. There's also a really good Asian market on Hollywood Blvd. just east of Western. (Sorry...I'm spacing on the name.) Great selection....terrific prices.

        1. Jon's Marketplace is a decent chain with locations around LA. They've got most of the regular grocery items plus a decent selection of Eastern European style breads, cheese, sausages and booze. The liquor aisle alone is worth checking out - where else can you get a bottle of Russian Standard vodka for $13?

            And Lurpak Danish butter for $3.50, instead of the $5.99 Whole Foods charges.

          2. There are so many. Is there anything in particular you are looking for? Also, by "international" do you mean "ethnic", European, or both?

              Good point!

              With five miles of my house I have HK Market (Korean), Seafood City (Filipino), Jons (mostly European), SuperKing (armenian with extras), SuperA (primarily latino.) If I'm willing to drive ten - fifteen miles then I can add in Japanese, Chinese, Russian and Thai.

              LA is fun for grocery shopping : )
