From Deena, in Washington DC:
I moved to Washington, DC a few months ago in order to seek my fortune. I've been having fun exploring the city on foot, checking out new-to-me places and seeing what's around. I was lucky enough to arrive while the farmer's markets were still open, but now many of them have closed for the season. Time to check out the indoor and year-round markets! The Georgetown neighborhood is not far from where I live and is home to lots of fun shops, including Dean & DeLuca, a gourmet food market. I've promised myself some fancy chocolates from there once my first paycheck arrives... should be soon!

From Susan, in Keene, New Hampshire:
When we can get to Hartford, we enjoy shopping at the ethnic markets. Cosmos is a tight little space packed with lots of dry food, tea, candies, prepared food, CDs and lots of Bollywood movies, as well as a small selection of frozen, refrigerated and fresh foods.

From Lydia (me!), in Rhode Island:
A couple of years ago, Nika told me about Ed Hyder's Mediterranean Market Place, a market serving the Middle Eastern, Armenian and Greek communities of Worcester, Massachusetts. It's taken me all this time to get there, though it's only an hour from my house. It won't be long before I go again.

From Lyndsey (The Tiny Skillet):
Our farmer's market is located downtown and is open 7am-12noon every Saturday. It takes about 15 minutes for us to drive there, but we get there early enough to get good parking. It is located right near our Whole Foods Market so I like to go in there after the market.
