Two Ladies Kitchen, a Bakery in Hilo, Hawaii
Two Ladies Kitchen in Hilo is a must-stop for Japanese confections and pastry, especially mochi and manju. Just bear in mind that this is a really small business, which means it's often closed (hours are Wednesday through Saturday, but call ahead before you go) and cash only. But Two Ladies' strawberry mochi earns raves that come perilously close to swooning. Address and contact info. Page 11.
Jean Talon Food Market in Montreal
Jean Talon Market in Montreal is one of the best food markets in the world.

E. Dehillerin, Cookware Shop in Paris
E. Dehillerin has been selling cookware for professionals and serious home chefs since 1820, and from its present location since 1880. This is a store that definitively favors function over form, which you'll notice when you look at the exuberantly cluttered windows, where merchandise is stacked more than displayed. Page 3.

Here are pictures of great food shops to visit on your next Paris trip, including Fauchon, Muriel Grateau, Maison de Miel (honey shop), La Bovida, E. Dehillerin, Galeries Lafayette Gourmet and La Grand Epicerie at Le Bon Marche.
La Bovida, Cookware Shop in Paris
La Bovida is a French chain of cookware shops catering to culinary professionals, although open to the public. It's got 19 locations throughout France, and one in Casablanca, Morocco. The Paris location is quite near to another well-regarded cookware shop, E. Dehillerin, so it's worth planning to stop by both. Page 4.
Montreal's Famous Smoked Meat at Schwartz's Deli
Schwart's smoked meat is the centerpiece of the menu, and is oft-compared with the pastrami at New York's Katz's deli. It's not an unreasonable comparison, as both restaurants were founded by Romanian Jews, and both serve marinated beef brisket that is then smoked. The difference lies in the composition of the brine that the brisket is marinated in, and the smoking technique. (In case you're curious, corned beef is unsmoked pastrami.) Page 5.

The New York Bagel
There aren't that many foods that can be considered "iconic New York" -- the city is such a melting pot
Traders Point Creamery Grounds
Traders Point Creamery is a small artisan dairy in Zionsville, Indiana, about twenty miles north of downtown Indianapolis. Its Brown Swiss cows graze on picturesque pastures, and the farm is certified organic. It's a beautiful spot to visit, but the real pleasure is in sampling the products: rich and creamy milk and chocolate milk, drinking yogurt, ice cream, and at the Christmas holidays, egg nog that's developed a local cult following.

Le Marche de Saveuers du Québec
Le Marche de Saveuers, across from Jean Talon Market, is where you'll want to pick up your Québecois foodie souvenirs. The store carries only food and drink made in Québec: wine, jam, spreads, and that most iconic of Canadian foods, maple syrup. The shop carries the pretty glass bottles shaped like a maple leaf, but you'll get a better deal (and be shopping like a local) if you purchase it in a can. Transfer it to a glass jar once you open it and keep it in the fridge. Page 8.
