Anyone exoited this resource? Like Asian markets for duck blood, fish roe and a hundred leafy green you've never had before? Armenian for smoked fish, sausage and eight kinds of feta? Etc.

I've been looking for live sauerkraut too, but no luck so far. I suspect that it's just not part of our food culture. If you're feeling adventurous, you could try making it at home; http://www.growyouthful.com/recipes/sauerkraut.php

Which market in San Gabriel? Have you gotten the 1 hour foot, back, shoulder massages out there for $15? Super legit. Better than $80 massages Ive gotten on the West Side.

Generally that is the case. You can sometimes find "natural" kraut with all of the healthy bacteria you'd expect.

Chinese supermarkets in the San Gabriel Valley area of Los Angeles are goddamned treasure troves:

real kimchi cheap NZ lamb (racks, organs, shoulders, ribs, ground, testicles, faces - yes, lamb faces) every possible cut of cow or pig (albeit conventionally raised) fresh/frozen fish, much of it wild caught (I get US caught wild salmon for about $4/lb, meaty heads for $1.50/lb) goat cheap spices sea vegetables strange delicacies like Dutch canned butter

I generally avoid the fresh meat and stick to the frozen imports. I buy a lot of NZ lamb and have nothing but good things to say about it.

I go to the Korean market for the variety in vegetables. I get all sorts of green vegetables I never see in the conventional markets for cheap prices and if you are into fruit there is also a huge variety. I used to also get meats as they have a lot of different cuts for cheap but Ive discovered that the meat is cheap for a reason and it doesnt make me feel that well. Im sure its not bad stuff my body is just sensitive. If youre not sensitive I would suggest picking up some of their pre-marinated Korean BBQ meats. Really tasty.

I also get different types of seaweed either from the Korean market or the Japanese market. FYI, the Korean markets are cheaper and usually nicer than the Japanese markets and more modern than the Chinese markets.

I have the most amazing Asian grocery store (it's as big as a walmart) near me and they have the most AMAZING whole fish selection (including salmon fish belly)! It's truly remarkable, and their prices are out of this world cheap! I adore this place more than... sleep? ha ha, no no, but it truly is great not only for my stomach but for my wallet too!

I want to find one that does real, live sauerkraut here in the South of England. I can't see the point of buying bottled / pasteurised - surely all the friendly bacteria will have been killed off?

There's this Afro-hair store,which sells a lot of tropical products too. I always buy my coconut milk over there,as it has no additives.I see the most outrageous fish&veggies over there too,but I'm always hesitant to buy those,since I dn't know what they are (high in carbs/starch,high fructose?additives in fish?) Then there's a Turkish supermarket around the corner,which sells lamb pretty cheap (compared to the supermarket) and I can get my sheep's cheese&various olives there. They also sell a lot of veggies,cheap avocado's,though you can't store them long bc they're pretty ripe already. The Asian food market near me is a huge disappointment...lots of asian/western products,meaning lots of hidden sugars in it.

Purchase young coconuts, kimchi, other fermented (and housemade) veggies at the asian grocery store. Very good and fresh source.
