28. Ratto’s International Market & Deli
> Location: Oakland, California (population: 417,442)

> Avg. Yelp rating: 4.0

This fourth-generation family-owned market is an Oakland institution. From bulk spices to incredible cheeses and from a panoply of olives and olive oils to a wide choice of pastas, this is a sort of Italian superstore (with a good choice of Spanish and other international items, too). An ample selection of deli sandwiches, salads, and prepared dishes is also on offer, to eat here or take home. “Everything here is FRESH!” enthused one fan on Yelp.

27. Uwajimaya
> Location: Beaverton, Oregon (population: 95,710)
> Total Yelp reviews: 411
> Avg. Yelp rating: 4.0

This family-owned Asian specialty supermarket has four Pacific Northwest locations. This Portland area branch offers the chain’s usual large choice of Asian groceries; fresh seafood, meat, and produce; gifts; and both hot and prepared to-go foods. An added bonus, though, is a Kinokuniya Bookstore — a branch of Japan’s largest bookstore chain.

26. Cantoro Italian Market
> Location: Plymouth, Michigan (population: 9,005)
> Total Yelp reviews: 427
> Avg. Yelp rating: 4.0

A 55,000-square-foot establishment in the Detroit metropolitan area (there is a second location, too), said to have been inspired by “the famous Italian markets in Rome, Venice and Palermo,” Cantoro is an Italian culinary mecca with a restaurant attached. There’s plenty of fresh produce as well as huge selections of coffee and tea, cheeses and other dairy products, baked goods, pastas, kitchenware, and wine, beer, and liquor. A visit is a way, wrote one Yelper, “to bring home a taste of Italy at a fraction of a plane ticket.”
