Hi everyone...in my continued research on our impending move, I have a bit of a question regarding food shops...I am an avid cook, and I cook anything and everything. I am very excited about all the local produce and products that will be available to me in Vermont, but I'm curious - are there any small specialty food shops that carry international products?

I would imagine there must be a few in Burlington...coming from NYC, I'm very used to going to different neighborhoods and picking up Italian, Thai, Japanese, Chinese, Polish and Indian products...I know a lot of things are available over the internet, but I would much rather support a local business.

Thanks!

Yes, there are a few asian and european food markets in the Burlington area. A small asian market is opening soon on Dorset Street in South Burlington. I can't remember its name, but I've met the folks that are opening it and they are really nice. Once the sign goes up I can post the store name if you'd like.

Not to be averse to anything here at all (I love real Italian food), but supporting a local shop to purchase global produce is, well, hmm.

unusual. not 'local' *****.

so, you could order from NYC if need be.

I know the products might not be local but seeing as how I'd be living in VT, I'd much rather support a local business owner than support someone in NY, who probably has a lot more foot and internet traffic.

Burlington offers alot, but good quality international products are hard to come by. You will have to do as I and many others do, and that is order from out of state. There are the asian shops that are ok, but they don't compare to those in NYC or Boston. I am a 1st generation Italian and getting good quality italian products is very difficult. There are many shops in and around NYC and Boston that will ship. I go to CT and NYC to visit family many times a year and always stop at the local shops to bring goods home. This may be an option also.

We love Vermont Cheese Traders. especially their wine sale every year, but they don't have hardly any of the specialty products we use.

Springfield Mass has some Italian markets/bakeries and goods to buy. Hartford has more.

Also Northampton has some boutique markets for international foods.

Thanks everyone...Vermont Cheese Traders looks like a great place - I will definitely check it out.

I kind of figured that the internet would have to be my main source, at least for the hard to find stuff, but it's good to know there are at least a few options. I am sure when we come down to NYC to visit I'll stock up as well...

Anyone have recommendations for a good butcher and fishmonger?
